The Heavy Metal Miners of Motherlode is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Shu-luft with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, deadly medical pandemics, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 4.03 billion Miners are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arcadia 3. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.0%.

The all-consuming Miner economy, worth 382 trillion Love Potions a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 94,881 Love Potions, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 346,863 per year while the poor average 18,409, a ratio of 18.8 to 1.

The only record being broken at sporting events is the highest death toll, demand for gourmet white truffles is on the rise, it's a hard-knock life for the orphans doing factory work for a pittance, and senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Motherlode's national animal is the Ursinoid, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Motherlode is ranked 13,340th in the world and 18th in United Earth Space Probe Agency for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 4 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
