The Nine in the Afternoon of Miss Bad Life Choices is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Dakota Vytherov with an iron fist, and remarkable for its enslaved workforce, zero percent divorce rate, and compulsory military service. The hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.361 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, with Law & Order, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Azaelai. The average income tax rate is 69.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Rachaelian economy, worth 785 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. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 146,575 gold coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Forty-year-old men are asked for their ID before watching the latest pony cartoon movies, diabetics find the contents of their medications hard to stomach, midnight raids drag couples from their homes in the name of decency, and the nation's atlases tend to go out of date every few weeks. 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 103,651st in the world and 237th in The Black Hawks for Most Pro-Market, scoring 47.22 on the Rand Index.
