The Anti-Sadist Institution of BrightBayUniversity is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Dean Cadmius Antioak Disignotus with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, state-planned economy, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.557 billion Professionals are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of University Office. The average income tax rate is 81.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient BrightBayUniversityian economy, worth 304 trillion Books 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 a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. 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 an impressive 119,142 Books, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Traumatized ex-ambassadors seek treatment for their "desk dissociation", the government has certified several glow-in-the-dark athletes as drug free, hay has been added to school cafeteria menus, and a valid legal defense is 'dead men tell no tales'. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. BrightBayUniversity's national animal is the Non-Intelligent-Sentient Beings, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Theory of Knowledge.

BrightBayUniversity is ranked 135,775th in the world and 189th in The Communist Bloc for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 21,683.94 Standard Monetary Units.
