The Golden Field of CB9 is a gargantuan, efficient nation, renowned for its frequent executions, daily referendums, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 14.121 billion CB9ians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 31.7%.

The powerhouse CB9ian economy, worth a remarkable 1,079 trillion sodas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 76,426 sodas, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 266,760 per year while the poor average 15,927, a ratio of 16.7 to 1.

Politicians bribe ten-year-old geniuses to sit their aptitude tests, giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls, old folks reminisce about the last time someone was acquitted of a crime, and advertisements read like science journal articles complete with extensive references. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. CB9's national animal is the duck, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

CB9 is ranked 18,908th in the world and 9th in The Invaders for Largest Populations, with 14.1 billion Capita.
