The Empire of The 9 Stars is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Empress Isara Theothanasia with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 23.748 billion 9 Starsians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Minas Anor. The average income tax rate is 85.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient 9 Starsian economy, worth a remarkable 4,760 trillion Sirions a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 200,463 Sirions, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

City workers have declared that rolling markets aren't good for business after all, tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread, populations of two-headed White Wolves have been found around recently-uncovered archaeological sites, and an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents. Crime is totally unknown. The 9 Stars's national animal is the White Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The 9 Stars is ranked 156,977th in the world and 6,435th in the West Pacific for Most Devout, with 3.88 Prayers Per Hour.
