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 barren, inhospitable landscape, free-roaming dinosaurs, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 16.609 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 69.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Electrumite economy, worth a remarkable 2,893 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 174,238 Synergies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Inter-species marriages are ignored by the government, they say that Electrumites made a dessert and called it peace, sports fans complain that cricket tests now last an unbearable ten days, and tourists are forbidden to enter Native Electrumite lands. 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 Whatever you want.

Electrum is ranked 113,116th in the world and 55th in Rushmore for Most Politically Free, scoring 60.19 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
