The Allied States of 9W is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 4.961 billion 9Wians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is effectively ruled by the Department of 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 47%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining industries.

The streets are increasingly clogged with poverty-stricken beggars, political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations, homeless people are frequently charged with trespassing on public property, and much of 9W's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence. 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 32nd in Balder and 557th in the world for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 16 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
