The Federation of K-9 is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Henigan with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 3.436 billion K-9ians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of K-9 City. The average income tax rate is 67.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient K-9ian economy, worth 476 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 138,766 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The K-9ian Intelligence Agency relies on internet search engines to know what is happening overseas, constipated disaster survivors are rapidly learning that MRE is short for "Meal Requiring Enemas", gossip magazines have pictures of President Henigan sunbathing on the beach with political rivals, and gay couples have to travel to Brancaland to find a church that will actually let them wed. Crime is totally unknown. K-9's national animal is the Border Collie, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

K-9 is ranked 87,821st in the world and 3,902nd in Lazarus for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 489.03 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
