The Imperial Province of The Seeker of Power is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Drangongarth Elegarth with an iron fist, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, hatred of cheese, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 23.877 billion Draconians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Midgard. The average income tax rate is 80.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Seeker of Powerian economy, worth a remarkable 3,071 trillion Golden Dragons a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 128,641 Golden Dragons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The men in trenchcoats hanging around playgrounds are actually police officers, frustrated teenage boys are told that if they like it then they should have put a ring on it, search and rescue forces now accept cheques and all major credit cards, and rubbing salt into wounds is seen as a good thing if it is 100% organic garlic-and-thyme salt. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Seeker of Power's national animal is the Black Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Draconism.

The Seeker of Power is ranked 167,055th in the world and 6,874th in the Pacific for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 44.75 Workforce Participation Rate.
