The Progressive Union of Seeker Alpha is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Dale the Honorable Skeptic with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic population of 18.337 billion Seeker Alphans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Administration, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sagan. The average income tax rate is 20.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Seeker Alphan economy, worth a remarkable 2,771 trillion credits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 151,150 credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Lawyers turn down litigation cases and corporate work in order to focus on lucrative public defence work, write-in candidate 'Dale the Honorable Skeptic Sucks' is perennially popular, recent protests against birds flying too low have resulted in bloodshed, and the nation's new foreign policy of 'very disproportionate retribution' has its neighbors on edge. Crime is totally unknown. Seeker Alpha's national animal is the badger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Unitarian Universalism.

Seeker Alpha is ranked 4,345th in the world and 14th in Texas for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 548.64 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
