The Nation formally by the name of 9003 is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The Zombie Goblin with an iron fist, and remarkable for its smutty television, disturbing lack of elderly people, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 18.474 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, with Industry and Administration also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Angband. The average income tax rate is 1.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Slave to the man economy, worth a remarkable 5,539 trillion gold bars 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 Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. 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 an amazing 299,829 gold bars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

The regional delicacy of chocolate bombes is deadlier than an unexploded bomb, an increasing number of citizens believe the world is flat, X-Files ratings have hit an all-time low, and 9003's fine wines are renowned throughout the region. 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 187th in the world and 4th in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 44,718.75 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
