Richard PSo, Fig Tree tells me to go check out MyBahamian Blog, and look what I find:

Scientific Discovery in the Bahamas

Nassau: International scientists working in the Bahamas, have discovered a new element in the periodic table.

The new element has been tentatively named "Governmentium ". Governmentium has 1 neutron, 12 assistant neutrons, 75 deputy neutrons, and 11 assistant deputy neutrons, giving it an atomic mass of 312.

These 312 particles are held together by forces called morons, which are surrounded by vast quantities of lepton-like particles called peons.

Since governmentium has no electrons, it is inert. However, it can be detected as it impedes every reaction with which it comes into contact. A minute amount of governmentium causes one reaction to take over 4 years to complete when it would normally take less than a second.

Governmentium has a normal half-life of 2.5 years; it does not decay, but instead undergoes a reorganization in which a portion of the assistant neutrons and deputy neutrons exchange places. In fact, governmentium's mass will actually increase over time, since each reorganization causes some morons to become neutrons, forming isodopes.

This characteristic of moron-promotion leads some scientists to speculate that governmentium is formed whenever morons reach a certain quantity in concentration.

This hypothetical quantity is referred to as "Critical Morass."

Also the first isotope of Governmentium, called Bahama-Governmentium has found to have one more isodope at the head of it. However the extra isodope is shown to be inert.
