The Plan Fell Off of 9front is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by glenda with an even hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, cheerful population of 3.08 billion 9frontians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Industry, with Healthcare, Law & Order, and Education also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of 9fs. The average income tax rate is 69.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient 9frontian economy, worth 449 trillion drawterms 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 slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Tourism, Retail, Woodchip Exports, and Furniture Restoration. 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 impressive 145,856 drawterms, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside, TV coverage of music festivals consists mostly of backstage interviews, wealthy pranksters dump refuse on unsuspecting citizens from up high, and citizens cannot change their light bulbs without approval from an international committee. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 9front's national animal is the rabbit, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

9front is ranked 37,554th in the world and 14th in Bits for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 69.42 Effective Tax Rate.
