Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Democratic Union of Seeker Alpha is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Dale the Honorable Skeptic with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 15.23 billion Seeker Alphans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Public Transport are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sagan. The average income tax rate is 57.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Seeker Alphan economy, worth a remarkable 2,050 trillion credits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 134,613 credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Burial ceremonies have become as routinised as tax forms, the armed forces pride themselves on being conventional and predictable, tampons are used as cheap fishing bobbers, and foreign leaders with unpaid parking tickets are often refused entry. 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 66,962nd in the world and 51st in Texas for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,541.89 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
