Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Jingoistic States of Get-Wired is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its flagrant waste-dumping, complete lack of public education, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.506 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.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Spirituality, Industry, and Law & Order are also considered important, 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 78.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Get-Wiredian economy, worth a remarkable 3,410 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 454,353 Silver Reindeer, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,660,995 per year while the poor average 88,158, a ratio of 18.8 to 1.

Emergency room admissions for 'stampede injuries' have skyrocketed since the introduction of weekly Sabbath Eve sales, birds and children's kites are regularly brought down by anti-aircraft fire, Get-Wired's newly-famous raindances to summon storms instead attract tourists from all over PC World, and prisoners work-share to cut down rising costs of keeping them in jail. 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.

Get-Wired is ranked 1st in PC World and 195th in the world for Most Avoided, scoring 5,902.648 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
