The Allied States of 9W is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 4.625 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 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 45%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining industries.

Birth rates have hit an all-time low, 9W City spends billions upgrading public transport, only the wealthy vote, and the nation's Medal of Honour can be found as a free toy in breakfast cereal. 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 1st in NationStates Congratulations Bureau and 2,337th in the world for Rudest Citizens, with 192.5 Insults Per Minute (net).
