The Allied States of 9W is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 4.921 billion 9Wians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is effectively ruled by the Department of Commerce, with areas such as Social Equality and the Environment receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of 9W City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 54%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining industries.

Students in 9W's schools rarely attend their classes, street gangs rule most of the nation's major cities, government police forces protect public schools from the threat of protest, and prosecutors routinely call transplant doctors as 'expert witnesses' in burglary cases. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling. 9W's national animal is the Gazelle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is a major religion, and its currency is the Glittery Bee.

9W is ranked 2,233rd in Balder and 77,871st in the world for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 46 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
