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, keen interest in outer space, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 19.722 billion Electrumites enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

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. The average income tax rate is 73.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Electrumite economy, worth a remarkable 3,481 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 176,507 Synergies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The Finance Ministry posts hourly updates on where taxpayer money is spent, pet owners want to know why their animals keep smiling at them, declaring that "some kids are just born evil" is not endearing The Computator to progressive thinkers, and the government puts forth the claim that harming young girls is wrong. 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 Satire.

Electrum is ranked 9,789th in the world and 8th in Rushmore for Highest Poor Incomes, with 112,207.36 Standard Monetary Units.
