The Gold and Silver Holdings of Electrum is a gargantuan, cultured nation, renowned for its smutty television, digital currency, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed population of 10.045 billion Electrumites have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Law & Order, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Centralis. The average income tax rate is 67.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Electrumian economy, worth a remarkable 1,488 trillion Synergies a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 148,140 Synergies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The legal minefield around ownership of fiction has demolished the publishing industry, many marriages go virtually unconsummated, supervisors in Electrum commonly tie bells on their necks to alert employees of their presence, and surrogate mothers are encouraged to refer to their wombs as 'rental space'. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Electrum's national animal is the Pig, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Whatever you want.

Electrum is ranked 11,100th in the world and 7th in Rushmore for Highest Poor Incomes, with 90,161.52 Standard Monetary Units.
