Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Jingoistic States of Get-Wired is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its flagrant waste-dumping, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 11.314 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, although Spirituality, Industry, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Get-Wired City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 72.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Get-Wiredian economy, worth a remarkable 5,229 trillion Silver Reindeer a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Gambling, Arms Manufacturing, Soda Sales, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 462,243 Silver Reindeer, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,689,842 per year while the poor average 89,689, 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. 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 13,942nd in the world and 1st in PC World for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 2,102.45 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
