The Progressive Union of Seeker Alpha is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Dale the Honorable Skeptic with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, unlimited-speed roads, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic population of 17.904 billion Seeker Alphans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Administration, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sagan. The average income tax rate is 6.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Seeker Alphan economy, worth a remarkable 2,636 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 147,248 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government recently donated a surfboard to an impoverished family in a landlocked region, the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists, teens are voting on which C-List pop star will be next to be evicted from the opera house, and all restaurants close before dinner time. 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 135,767th in the world and 116th in Texas for Highest Crime Rates, with 2.2 Crimes Per Hour.
