Overview Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Democratic Union of Seeker Alpha is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Dale the Honorable Skeptic with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, frequent executions, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 15.732 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, although Healthcare, Environment, and Public Transport are also considered important, 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 64.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Seeker Alphan economy, worth a remarkable 2,192 trillion credits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 139,379 credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, fifteen-year-olds cannot walk younger siblings to school without a professional Childcare and Education Certificate, SA-SPAN viewership drops as MPs act their age, and senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour. Crime is totally unknown. Seeker Alpha's national animal is the badger, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Seeker Alpha is ranked 1,808th in the world and 5th in Texas for Most Developed, scoring 96.08 on the Human Development Index.
