The Protectorate of RSCA Privateer 9 is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, ubiquitous missile silos, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, devout population of 2.723 billion RSCA Privateer 9ians 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 juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 42.6%.

The thriving RSCA Privateer 9ian economy, worth 209 trillion cards a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 76,930 cards, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 266,206 per year while the poor average 16,245, a ratio of 16.4 to 1.

RSCA Privateer 9ians must literally pay their respects to hear from their political representatives, RSCA Privateer 9's heavy congestion charges are the bane of motorists' lives, blind dates tend to result in bruised shins, and the only soporific permitted during sermons is the preacher's voice. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. RSCA Privateer 9's national animal is the stonk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

RSCA Privateer 9 is ranked 104,425th in the world and 2nd in Terra Nova for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 2,205.37 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
