The True Pacifican Fan Girl of The Seeker of Power is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by God Hugperor Elegarth with an iron fist, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 29.977 billion Huggeriteses 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, 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 95.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Seeker of Powerian economy, worth a remarkable 7,537 trillion Hug Bars a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 251,429 Hug Bars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Military minds worry that 'the blue screen of death' on brand new operating systems may be a literal description, religious education is a new government priority, nursing mothers are often arrested for indecent exposure, and helicopter parenting is on the rise. 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 Hugbear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Atheism.

The Seeker of Power is ranked 251,382nd in the world and 8,807th in the Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -18.52 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
