The Allied States of 9W is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.68 billion 9Wians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.
The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Industry, with Law & Order, Healthcare, and Defense also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of 9W City. Income tax is unheard of.
The frighteningly efficient 9Wian economy, worth a remarkable 1,694 trillion Glittery Bees a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 298,268 Glittery Bees, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,415,186 per year while the poor average 37,098, a ratio of 38.1 to 1.
Mining is the nation's most dangerous occupation, employers may fire workers without giving any reason, college students make ends meet by selling their kidneys, and murder rates are on the rise as the popularity of soylent products grows. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. 9W's national animal is the Gazelle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is a major religion.
