The Autocratic Hugging Emperor of The Seeker of Power is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Hugperor with an iron fist, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, anti-smoking policies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 28.576 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 6,471 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 226,474 Gold Bars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Work creation schemes keep the masses occupied with meaningless tasks, citizens praise the weeds that overwhelm their narrow vegetable realm, preschoolers practice disarming active shooters before naptime, and travelers are subject to extensive searches if beet stains are visible on their clothing. 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 89,418th in the world and 2,492nd in the Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 20.78 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
