The Nation formally by the name of 9003 is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The Zombie Goblin with an iron fist, and renowned for its triple-decker prams, sprawling nuclear power plants, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 18.215 billion public filth 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.

The tiny, corrupt, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Industry is also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Angband. The average income tax rate is 1.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Slave to the man economy, worth a remarkable 5,478 trillion gold bars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 300,758 gold bars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

A typical fast food menu item could serve a small army, it's a common sight to see angry commuters with grenade launchers mounted on their vehicles, it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, and people are always complaining about dam builders running behind schedule. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. 9003's national animal is the human, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is 9002ism.

9003 is ranked 672nd in the world and 26th in The North Pacific for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 295,645.18 Standard Monetary Units.
