The Gold and Silver Alloy of Electrum is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Computator with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, flagrant waste-dumping, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 16.344 billion Electrumites enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

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 Centralis. The average income tax rate is 69.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Electrumite economy, worth a remarkable 2,820 trillion Synergies 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 172,588 Synergies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Neighbouring countries pay to situate their nuclear power plants in Electrum, major cities are suffering under water rationing, tourists are flocking to the newly-built MeteorLand family resort, and the Electrumite Tourism Bureau has described the abolition of coastal defences as a "kick to the groyne". 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 Whatever you want.

Electrum is ranked 1,596th in the world and 2nd in Rushmore for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 14,504.48 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
