The Progressive Union of Seeker Alpha is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Dale the Honorable Skeptic with an even hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate population of 23.353 billion Seeker Alphans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Healthcare, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sagan. The average income tax rate is 67.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Seeker Alphan economy, worth a remarkable 4,098 trillion credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 175,511 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Thieves find battery shops juicier targets than banks, there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, a recent political speech drew the ire of nerds everywhere after the speaker claimed that Darth Vader was Harry Potter's father, and dubiously qualified East Lebatuckese doctors prescribe ice baths as a treatment for pneumonia. 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 195,641st in the world and 163rd in Texas for Most Conservative, scoring 27.79 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
