The Jingoistic States of Get-Wired is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 6.66 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 on the agenda. 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.

Get-Wired's fine wines are renowned throughout the region, scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, Ollie the Oiled Seal welcomes throngs of tourists to the newly opened Oil Oasis Water Park, and all citizens are solely referenced by their allocated identity number. 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 27,578th in the world for Nudest, with 186 Cheeks per Square Mile.
