My problem is to build, for every prime $p$, a field of characteristic $p$ in which every polynomial of degree $\leq n$ ($n$ a fixed natural number) has a root, but such that the field is not algebraically closed.
If I'm not wrong (please correct me if I am) such a field cannot be finite, by counting arguments. But on the other hand, the union of all finite fields (or of any ascending chain of finite fields) of characteristic $p$, which is what I get if I start with $F_p$ and add a root to each polynomial of degree $\leq n$ in each step, is the algebraic closure of $F_p$, hence algebraically closed. I don't see how I can control this process so that in the end I get a field that is not algebraically closed.
Any hint will be welcome. Thanks in advance.
