The Autocratic Hugging Emperor of The Seeker of Power is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The Hugperor with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 28.74 billion Draconians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Midgard. The average income tax rate is 95.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Seeker of Powerian economy, worth a remarkable 6,567 trillion Gold Bars a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 228,513 Gold Bars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Cassocked priests and choirboys believe that what happens behind closed doors stays behind closed doors, the government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life, new homeowners go furniture hunting with crowbars, and government adverts say that twelve lashes a day keeps divine wrath at bay. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Seeker of Power's national animal is the Leprechaun, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Consumism.

The Seeker of Power is ranked 1,948th in the world and 57th in the Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 14,959.66 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
