The Nine in the Afternoon of Miss Bad Life Choices is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Dakota Vytherov with an iron fist, and remarkable for its closed borders, ubiquitous missile silos, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.231 billion Rachaels are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Azaelai. The average income tax rate is 69.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Rachaelian economy, worth 757 trillion gold coins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 144,739 gold coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

The flight attendant who draws the short straw is on "cockpit bucket duty", the thought of funding space programs drives Dakota Vytherov crazy, several inches are being added to first class seating, and the world outside is only known of in folklore. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Miss Bad Life Choices's national animal is the black hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Lynxism.

Miss Bad Life Choices is ranked 13,485th in the world and 23rd in The Black Hawks for Most Developed, scoring 87.39 on the Human Development Index.
