The Nation formally by the name of 9003 is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The Zombie Goblin with an iron fist, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, free-roaming dinosaurs, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 17.689 billion public filth are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The tiny, corrupt, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Industry is also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Angband. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Slave to the man economy, worth a remarkable 5,167 trillion gold bars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 292,122 gold bars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,806,192 per year while the poor average 20,443, a ratio of 88.3 to 1.

Global anti-terrorist organisations strongly suspect 9003 of supplying extremist groups, mouldy bread is served as an appetizer in many restaurants, ministers are now allowed to put suggestions in the governmental suggestion box, and airship use has soared while property values beneath their routes have plummeted. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. 9003's national animal is the human, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is 9002ism.

9003 is ranked 194,228th in the world and 8,771st in The North Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 17.14 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
