The Eighth Federation of K9ation is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Marcus Groll with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, free-roaming dinosaurs, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 9.289 billion Pontrians 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 Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cinder 1. The average income tax rate is 70.0%.

The frighteningly efficient K9ationian economy, worth a remarkable 1,454 trillion Federal Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 156,592 Federal Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

Airplane passengers who purchase "basic economy" tickets are often assigned seats in the lavatory, politicians bribe ten-year-old geniuses to sit their aptitude tests, CSI Forest is this year's hit new crime show, and Occam's razor has sliced to pieces any childhood belief in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. K9ation's national animal is the SQUIRREL, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

K9ation is ranked 12,272nd in the world and 1st in The Western Colonies for Highest Economic Output, with 1,454 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
