The Democratic Republic of Get Away From Me is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Christmas Powers with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, rampant corporate plagiarism, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.599 billion Get Awayians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Welfare, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Paczki. The average income tax rate is 96.3%.

The all-consuming Get Awayan economy, worth 958 trillion baht a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 126,114 baht, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Millions of Get Awayians are excellent swimmers, hipster cyclists declare that "metal is dead", the fire brigade often deal with cases of burnt toast, and recognizing the Get Awayan flag qualifies you for citizenship. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Get Away From Me's national animal is the elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Get Away From Me is ranked 188,509th in the world and 7,204th in Lazarus for Most Pro-Market, scoring -83 on the Rand Index.
