The Grand Duchy of Nine Free Swords is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 14.208 billion Nine Free Swordsians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The tiny government prioritizes Industry, with Education, Healthcare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.9%.

The very strong Nine Free Swordsian economy, worth 497 trillion Gold Pieces a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is quite specialized and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 35,006 Gold Pieces, with the richest citizens earning 8.7 times as much as the poorest.

New funding allows inner city teachers to replace school laptops almost as fast as they get stolen, autopsies often involve only cursory examination, politicians and casino owners who so much as wander into the same room are arrested on the spot, and meat prices are soaring as the farming industry struggle under government-imposed restrictions. Crime is a problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Nine Free Swords's national animal is the Lion.

Nine Free Swords is ranked 91,005th in the world and 4th in Fallout DnD for Fattest Citizens, with 10.07 Obesity Rate.
