The Nation formally by the name of 9003 is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The Great Goblin with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, absence of drug laws, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 16.835 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 1.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Slave to the man economy, worth a remarkable 4,832 trillion gold bars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 287,042 gold bars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,069,306 per year while the poor average 12,757, a ratio of 162 to 1.

The consent form for routine blood pressure measurement has been nominated for the 'Novel Of The Year' award, the nation's conservatives are known to favour male escorts, drowning sailors are hung out to dry, and former school buses now regularly shuttle kids to the nearest shopping centers to work. 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 74,878th in the world and 2,259th in The North Pacific for Most Stationary, with 131.76315872708 Days.
