The Gold and Silver Holdings of Electrum is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 10.623 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, with Healthcare, Industry, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Centralis. The average income tax rate is 68.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Electrumian economy, worth a remarkable 1,596 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 150,300 Synergies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Surrogate mothers are encouraged to refer to their wombs as 'rental space', there is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality, 'To Regulate And Beyond' is the unofficial motto of the Electrumian Space Agency, and groups of government workers are declared protected tribes if they venture too deep into the Capitol. 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 20,937th in the world and 16th in Rushmore for Lowest Crime Rates, with 79.68 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
