The Jingoistic States of Get-Wired is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 6.634 billion Get-Wiredians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Defence, although Religion & Spirituality and Commerce are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Get-Wired City. The average income tax rate is 96%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Gambling and Uranium Mining.

Mobile phone masts are being erected all over the country, the nation's diplomatic missives are now delivered via sniper rifle, Get-Wired City is a police state during international summits, and Get-Wired's newly-famous raindances to summon storms instead attract tourists from all over PC World. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling. Get-Wired's national animal is the Turkey, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is a major religion, and its currency is the Silver Reindeer.

Get-Wired is ranked 1st in PC World and 2,430th in the world for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 13 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
