The Jingoistic States of Get-Wired is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 5.947 billion Get-Wiredians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on 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.

The police have been swamped with requests to stay up past bedtime, dog breeding has been banned in accordance with recent animal experimentation laws, suppression of pro-democracy protests is a daily occurrence, and hairdressers are among those who have disappeared overnight. 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 107,782nd in the world for Most Average, scoring -179 on the Average Standarized Normality Scale.
