The Au and Ag Alloy of Electrum is a gargantuan, efficient nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, flagrant waste-dumping, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 15.4 billion Electrumites enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hamilton. The average income tax rate is 67.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Electrumite economy, worth a remarkable 2,626 trillion Nothings a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an impressive 170,541 Nothings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Oil rigs in winter are heated by contained oil slick fires, hedge fund managers are diversifying into herbaceous borders, traffic cops spend most of their work-hours calculating citizens' monthly income, and politicians "baring all" for the camera isn't always a figure of speech. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Electrum's national animal is the Koala, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Lol.

Electrum is ranked 120,089th in the world and 44th in Rushmore for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 860.81 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
