[Haskell-cafe] New user, pardon what may be a dumb question

I am using ghci to learn Haskell.  My question is it possible to
assign an object that contains state (for lack of knowing the proper
terminology) so a variable or some such from the interactive prompt.

More concretely I would like to do something like this non-working code snippet:

System.Random> x <- return (mkStdGen 45)
System.Random> random x :: (int, StdGen)
