The Nation formally by the name of 9003 is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The Great Goblin with an iron fist, and notable for its ritual sacrifices, flagrant waste-dumping, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 17.48 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 government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Industry and Administration also on the agenda, 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 5,105 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 292,069 gold bars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,792,611 per year while the poor average 20,827, a ratio of 86.1 to 1.

Baseball caps are the new fashion trend, police reduce their paperwork by refusing to arrest anyone, there's some really clean windows in Slave to the man houses, and black tea is only available on the black market. 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 7,415th in the world and 307th in The North Pacific for Nudest, with 711.75 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
