The Stained of Bridgett is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Bridgett Zeroe with a fair hand, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, pith helmet sales, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 4.508 billion Bridgett live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Incarceron. Income tax is unheard of.

The all-consuming Bridgett economy, worth 976 trillion rubles a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Gambling, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 216,626 rubles, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,857,990 per year while the poor average 4,310, a ratio of 431 to 1.

Only the rich can afford the latest medical innovations, the nanny industry has had a boom after maternity leave was recently banned, disadvantaged neighbourhoods have become no-go areas after sundown, and the military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Bridgett's national animal is the angel, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Egoism.

Bridgett is ranked 2,813th in the world and 1st in Sonindia for Most Pro-Market, scoring 97 on the Rand Index.
