The Good Natured Hugging Realm of The Seeker of Power is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Dragon Emperor Elegarth with an iron fist, and notable for its ban on automobiles, ritual sacrifices, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 25.534 billion Draconians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Healthcare, and Social Policy are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Midgard. The average income tax rate is 83.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Seeker of Powerian economy, worth a remarkable 4,244 trillion Golden Dragons a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Uranium Mining, Tourism, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 166,243 Golden Dragons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Search and rescue forces now accept cheques and all major credit cards, CEOs are forced to cut coupons during important conference calls to make ends meet, a division of tanks navigating "as the crow flies" has driven into a ravine, and both vegetables and viruses are often smuggled across the border. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Seeker of Power's national animal is the Black Dragon, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Draconism.

The Seeker of Power is ranked 2,186th in the world and 59th in the Pacific for Most Corrupt Governments, with 235.69 Kickbacks Per Hour.
