The April Showers May Flowers of The Gold Mines is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Robert with an even hand, and renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, anti-smoking policies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 5.07 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 Gold City. The average income tax rate is 71.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gold Miner economy, worth 779 trillion Golden Coins a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 153,757 Golden Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Children grow up long before the paperwork for their lemonade stands can be sorted out, tourists need only sign on the dotted line to become citizens, government police forces protect public schools from the threat of protest, and mathematicians are gathering an infinite number of Golden Kittens and typewriters to see if they can recreate the works of Max Barry. 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 Kitten, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Gold Mines is ranked 11,664th in the world and 4th in Just relax for Smartest Citizens, with 85.2 quips per hour.
