The Materialistic Earthly Empire of The Seeker of Power is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Dragon Emperor Elegarth with an iron fist, and remarkable for its enslaved workforce, public floggings, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 27.381 billion Draconians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Midgard. The average income tax rate is 92.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Seeker of Powerian economy, worth a remarkable 6,003 trillion Golden Dragons a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 219,267 Golden Dragons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

When shaking hands with foreign leaders Dragon Emperor Elegarth wears an armoured gauntlet, it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, the police crack down on tax evaders without mercy, and the aphorism "there's no need to argue" has been dismissed by Draconians. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Seeker of Power's national animal is the Black Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Leprechaun.

The Seeker of Power is ranked 217,899th in the world and 6,710th in the Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -15.44 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
