The Gold and Silver assets made of Electrum is a gargantuan, safe nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons, digital currency, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 15.158 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 government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Healthcare, and Law & Order 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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 67.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Electrumite economy, worth a remarkable 2,680 trillion Credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 176,842 Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 574,308 per year while the poor average 41,057, a ratio of 14.0 to 1.

Grinning punters say that casino roulette is the greatest high that life has to offer, a shipwreck is everyone's fault but the captain's, formerly fertile fields are being leached dry of nutrients by intensive farming, and being nicknamed "Orange Face" has done Leader's credibility no favours. 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 frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Whatever you want.

Electrum is ranked 136,308th in the world and 72nd in Rushmore for Most Extreme, scoring 13.94 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
