The Confederacy of Electricate is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 361 million robots are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Administration, and Industry also on the agenda, while International Aid isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Motherboard. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 47.1%.

The thriving electric economy, worth 29.3 trillion screws a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Woodchip Exports, and Gambling. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 81,224 screws, with the richest citizens earning 7.5 times as much as the poorest.

Government officials across Electricate are being "encouraged" to adopt rust-eaters to set an example for the populace, children spout "In BIOS we trust" involuntarily throughout the day, strange looking men with big red noses are found hiding behind bushes and inside dustbins, and women mime their gynaecological symptoms with hand-puppets. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Electricate's national animal is the rust-eater, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Electricate is ranked 114,829th in the world and 5th in The Great Universe for Most Developed, scoring 55.44 on the Human Development Index.
