The Nation formally by the name of 9003 is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Great Goblin with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, barren, inhospitable landscape, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 17.452 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 government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Industry and Administration are also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Angband. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Slave to the man economy, worth a remarkable 5,086 trillion gold bars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 291,459 gold bars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,795,452 per year while the poor average 20,590, a ratio of 87.2 to 1.

A recent "genocide prevention" campaign includes murdering children based on their DNA, national chefs believe that you can eat anything so long as you deep fry it first, the only place where one can see the Slave to the man cherry tree is in a museum, and baseball caps are the new fashion trend. 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 1,333rd in the world and 39th in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 243.13 on the Hayek Index.
