The Free Land of Getherness is a gargantuan, cultured nation, remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, flagrant waste-dumping, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 11.729 billion Getherins enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Getherness City. The average income tax rate is 87.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Getherine economy, worth 674 trillion GetherPoints a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 57,507 GetherPoints, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators, GetherLings with strange deformities like three eyes and tentacles have been seen prancing through the countryside where industrial waste is dumped, all guns must be registered, and public nudity is compulsory. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Getherness's national animal is the GetherLing, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Getherness is ranked 37,512th in the world and 3rd in Autism Spectrum for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 3,661.17 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
