The Sadistic Republic of Bright Angel is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Johann der Becker with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, prohibition of alcohol, and disturbing lack of elderly people. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 33.614 billion Bright Angelians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

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 receive no funds. 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 42,001 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 1,249,527 zuchs, with the richest citizens earning 8.3 times as much as the poorest.

Official maps have to be revised on a weekly basis, the government has invited tenders from other nations to run the country's infrastructure, record sales of 'child-whacking sticks' have been reported, and scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway. 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 22nd in the world and 1st in Macfora Forever for Largest Governments, scoring 121.96 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
