The Allied States of 9W is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 5.111 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 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 51%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining industries.

The government's religious works are headed by a New Age guru, only a minority of the population can actually vote at elections, scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, and theoretical science is only theoretical. 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 35th in Balder and 597th in the world for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 16 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
