The Allied States of 9W is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.986 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 aren't funded at all. 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 1,789 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 298,896 Glittery Bees, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,448,999 per year while the poor average 35,689, a ratio of 40.6 to 1.
Murder rates are on the rise as the popularity of soylent products grows, the nation's cuisine is the laughing stock of Balder, Ollie the Oiled Seal welcomes throngs of tourists to the newly opened Oil Oasis Water Park, and the nation is reliant on the principle of mutually assured destruction to maintain its security. 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.
