The Golden 2 billion of The Gold Mines is a massive, safe nation, ruled by President Fiona Frost with an even hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, prohibition of alcohol, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.151 billion Gold Miners 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hades. The average income tax rate is 33.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gold Miner economy, worth 219 trillion Gold coins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 102,231 Gold coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The nation sends criminals home to think about what they did, airplanes have giant grilles on their noses to knock drones out of their path, satellite images show safe electoral constituencies in complete darkness, and families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Gold Mines's national animal is the Golden Kitten, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Gold Mines is ranked 141,193rd in the world and 15th in Just relax for Most Authoritarian, with 601.23 milliStalins.
