The Nine in the Afternoon of Miss Bad Life Choices is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Dakota Vytherov with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ritual sacrifices, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.215 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 prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Azaelai. The average income tax rate is 69.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Rachaelian economy, worth 751 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 144,187 gold coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Organ donation is compulsory, wildlife near farms is slowly becoming extinct, the wearing and manufacture of fur apparel is banned, and the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes. 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 25,273rd in the world and 70th in The Black Hawks for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 5,084.84 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
