The Rogue Nation of 9008 is a colossal, efficient nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, zero percent divorce rate, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 9.041 billion 9008ians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 70.6%.

The frighteningly efficient 9008ian economy, worth a remarkable 1,297 trillion Marks a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 143,545 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

EULAs remind customers that "Private Mode" is a browser setting rather than a promise, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, Tetris has been banned for its graphic violent content, and party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 9008's national animal is the Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

9008 is ranked 162,614th in the world and 3,390th in the Rejected Realms for Most Influential, scoring 56 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
