The Happy Holidays of The Gold Mines is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Evangeline Sanders with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, otherworldly petting zoo, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 4.077 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 Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mushroom City. The average income tax rate is 61.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Gold Miner economy, worth 569 trillion Candy Canes a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 139,662 Candy Canes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

Crowded passenger trains are near-silent save for the soft tap of fingers on touchscreens, expats return home to a government devoid of social and environmental agencies, fruit market traders let their stock spoil rather than reduce their prices at the day's end, and cops shout apologies with every swing of their baton. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Gold Mines's national animal is the Golden reindeer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Gold Mines is ranked 347th in the world and 1st in Just relax for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 3,272.29 Bank.
