The Republic of BrightFutures is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 29.692 billion BrightFuturesians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Law & Order, and Public Transport are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of BrightFutures City. The average income tax rate is 97.9%.

The frighteningly efficient BrightFuturesian economy, worth a remarkable 5,604 trillion Luminosities a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 188,737 Luminosities, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Students do more community service than homework, broken suspension systems are giving auto repair shops plenty of business, the BrightFutures Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, and fake designer clothes are shredded and burnt while many in the world don't have a shirt on their back. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. BrightFutures's national animal is the Sun, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

BrightFutures is ranked 118,903rd in the world and 5,275th in The North Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 41.67 on the Rand Index.
