The Allied States of 9W is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 4.797 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 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 controversial show 'Who Wants to be an Immigrant?' has become wildly popular, the government is spending millions on 'trust campaigns' in an effort to win back the public's support, a survey of the nation's rivers and children has shown that pesticide levels are at an all-time regional high, and it is a common belief that a sport isn't sport if there are no decapitations. 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 103,786th in the world for Most Godforsaken, with -9 Dawkins.
