The Infinite Empire of Ascenon is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Albion with an even hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 12.49 billion Ascenonians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pandosut. The average income tax rate is 76.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Ascenonian economy, worth a remarkable 3,396 trillion Imperial Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 271,946 Imperial Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Jobs opportunities abound in the Hole Recycling industry, bars are packed at all hours, artists are pillars of society, and tax assessment offices double as polling stations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ascenon's national animal is the Raptor-Demon-Pig-Thing, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Infinite God Dragon.
