The Sadistic Republic of Bright Angel is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Johann der Becker with an iron fist, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, smutty television, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 34.971 billion Bright Angelians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Spirituality, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Flagstaff. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Bright Angelian economy, worth an astonishing 44,078 trillion zuchs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 1,260,434 zuchs, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,684,613 per year while the poor average 238,291, a ratio of 19.7 to 1.

Citizens rise at daybreak every day for mandatory exercise, tourists visiting the nation are warned not to drink local tap water, children often kick red bearded woodchucks for amusement, and a soldier's body is a temple. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Bright Angel's national animal is the red bearded woodchuck, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Veni vidi vici.

Bright Angel is ranked 27,486th in the world and 1st in Macfora Forever for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 19.66 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
