The Red orange gold green blue of The Gold Mines is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Droider with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, prohibition of alcohol, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.656 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, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mushroom city. The average income tax rate is 43.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gold Miner economy, worth 267 trillion Gold coins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 100,737 Gold coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Sexually-starved male dinosaurs terrorise tourists during weekly breakouts from Mesozoic Park, you can tell when Gold Miners are being snarky by the fact their lips are moving, tumbleweed drifts through the nation's shopping centres during the weekends, and passwords to nuclear codes must now contain upper and lower case characters. 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 88,687th in the world and 14th in Just relax for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 2,905.11 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
