The Jingoistic States of Get-Wired is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, enslaved workforce, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.219 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.
The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Spirituality, Industry, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Get-Wired City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 78.5%.
The frighteningly efficient Get-Wiredian economy, worth a remarkable 3,268 trillion Silver Reindeer a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, Uranium Mining, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 452,759 Silver Reindeer, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,711,276 per year while the poor average 83,343, a ratio of 20.5 to 1.
Violent criminals are doomed to be hunted by a psychotic billionaire, the booming slave trade is now government-funded, organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, and absentminded citizens frequently converse with hallucinations. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Get-Wired's national animal is the Turkey, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is a major religion.
