The Nine in the Afternoon of Miss Bad Life Choices is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Dakota Vytherov with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.188 billion Rachaels 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, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while International Aid receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Azaelai. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 69.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Rachaelian economy, worth 746 trillion gold coins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 143,968 gold coins, with the richest citizens earning 8.5 times as much as the poorest.

People reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, 100-year-old politicians are now a thing of the past, the explosive fireball of the disintegrating space shuttle has devastated Cape Miss Bad Life Choices, and 50% of adverts on children's television are for clothes made of cotton wool. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Miss Bad Life Choices's national animal is the black hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Lynxism.

Miss Bad Life Choices is ranked 138,725th in the world and 398th in The Black Hawks for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 83.71 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
