The Republic of The Avid Horizon is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic population of 626 million Seekers are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of NORTH. The average income tax rate is 90.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Seeking economy, worth 43.7 trillion echoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. Average income is 69,885 echoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nationalised Arms Manufacturing Industry is not interested in making weapons, the government has little issue with allowing its citizens to languish in foreign jails, counselors have to sign pledges supporting gay rights before they can speak to any patients, and Leader's office has a newly installed Max-Man arcade game programmed by a 5th-grader. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Avid Horizon's national animal is the rat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Avid Horizon is ranked 48,209th in the world and 3rd in The High Wilderness for Highest Drug Use, scoring 80.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
