The Allied States of 9W is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 4.566 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.

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 43%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining industries.

Urban high-volume mailers now receive their mail via chauffeur-driven limousines, scenic tours are unheard of after most environmental laws were abolished, students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, and immigrant Maxtopians are routinely sold on popular internet auction sites. 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 1,555th in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 754 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
