The Gold and Silver Alloy of Electrum is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Computator with an even hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, otherworldly petting zoo, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 16.826 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, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Centralis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 69.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Electrumite economy, worth a remarkable 2,887 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 171,626 Synergies, with the richest citizens earning 8.8 times as much as the poorest.

Asking 'does my bum look big in this?' leads to 30 hours of self-esteem classes, criminal rehabilitation takes place in re-education centers, employers may fire workers without giving any reason, and consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed. 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 237,031st in the world and 92nd in Rushmore for Most Beautiful Environments, with 6.77 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
