The Autocratic Hugging Emperor of The Seeker of Power is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The Hugperor with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, smutty television, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 28.728 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 6,590 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. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 229,404 Gold Bars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

No one gossips with The Hugperor during diplomatic summits, in life full of care there is no time to stop and stare, the military invades any neighboring nation with the gall to criticize its policies, and pollution is on the rise along with government approvals of fracking projects. 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 223,623rd in the world and 5,754th in the Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 6.48 Obesity Rate.
