The Allied States of 9W is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 4.39 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.

Citizens must pay to enjoy 9W's pristine beaches, it is widely believed that the first citizen of 9W was called 'Wild-eyed Daddy-O', the nation's drinking water tends to glow green at night, and tax evaders are regularly visited by agents of the 9W Blood Tithe. 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 111,339th in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring -51 on the Enoch Index.
