The Progressive Union of Seeker Alpha is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Dale the Honorable Skeptic with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, unlimited-speed roads, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 23.107 billion Seeker Alphans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Healthcare, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sagan. The average income tax rate is 67.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Seeker Alphan economy, worth a remarkable 4,045 trillion credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 175,097 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Research grant proposals read like political diatribes, a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park, stealing from a clothesline is a serious offence, and Dale the Honorable Skeptic's used car is held together by bumper stickers that support the opposition. Crime is totally unknown. Seeker Alpha's national animal is the badger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Seeker Alpha is ranked 5,825th in the world and 18th in Texas for Rudest Citizens, with 138.39 Insults Per Minute.
