Get Away From Me

Population4.413 billion

LeaderChristmas Powers


The Democratic Republic of Get Away From Me is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Christmas Powers with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.413 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, outspoken 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 95.3%.

The thriving Get Awayan economy, worth 469 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 highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 106,446 baht, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Jabbing a baby's bottle at officials gets parents waved straight through immigration, billions of baht are spent to take high-quality photos of the Elephant Nebula, NationStates is now a popular brand of laxatives despite Max Barry's protests, and posters on 'Get Awayan Values' advise against being proud of Get Away From Me. 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 158,649th in the world and 8,042nd in The North Pacific for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 20.71 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
