The Allied States of 9W is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. Its hard-nosed, hard-working population of 3.813 billion 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 53%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Retail industries.

Brazen mayors claim official expenses to pay for their drug habits, ten-year-olds regularly found their own political parties, the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, and the government has the power to seize property at will. 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 88,881st in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.12 Stalins.
