The Sadistic Republic of Bright Angel is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Johann der Becker with an iron fist, and notable for its aversion to nipples, suspicion of poets, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 34.796 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, with Industry, Spirituality, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare aren't funded at all. 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 43,866 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 1,260,679 zuchs, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,634,037 per year while the poor average 242,518, a ratio of 19.1 to 1.

Citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow, Johann der Becker can't hear a thing when the unwashed masses throw rocks at the new state limousine, Dogman-branded weapons are all the rage in the militaristic comic-book community, and the nation's government buildings are remarkable for being ugly concrete boxes. 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 27,648th in the world and 1st in Macfora Forever for Most Extreme, scoring 34.56 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
