The Materialistic Earthly Empire of The Seeker of Power is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Dragon Emperor Elegarth with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, ritual sacrifices, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 27.126 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 large, 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 91.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Seeker of Powerian economy, worth a remarkable 5,929 trillion Golden Dragons a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 218,584 Golden Dragons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Airplane passengers have been known to stuff pillows in their jackets to get extra arm room, politicians can be condescending (which by the way means "showing an attitude of patronising superiority"), it's a marvellous night for a moon dance as the sparks on your home start to rise, and the teaching of evolution has been banned. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Seeker of Power's national animal is the Black Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Leprechaun.

The Seeker of Power is ranked 206,570th in the world and 6,548th in the Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -16.61 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
