The Arithmancy of Numerals IX is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Count Maximus with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, strictly enforced bedtime, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.577 billion Numerals 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Digitus Romanicus. The average income tax rate is 15.2%.

The powerhouse Numbered economy, worth 155 trillion Digits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Retail. Average income is 98,636 Digits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Numerals refer to transgender people with insults instead of pronouns, soldiers on first dates introduce themselves only by their ranks and serial numbers, the only thing that can pin down a "superhero" is red tape, and same-sex marriages are increasingly common. Crime is totally unknown. Numerals IX's national animal is the Numbear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Numerology.

Numerals IX is ranked 78,558th in the world and 208th in Last Flight for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 83.55 on the Hayek Index.
