The Allied States of 9W is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 5.252 billion 9Wians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to 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 49%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining industries.

The populace harbors a fierce hatred of the metric system, the government is suspected of mass disappearing dissidents both at home and abroad, nobody ever seems to enter or leave the armour-plated flying castle that serves as 9W's House of Parliament, and it's always rabbit season. 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 19th in Balder and 542nd in the world for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 17 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
