Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Imperial Commonwealth of Ascenon is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Alphonse with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, sprawling nuclear power plants, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 12.681 billion Ascenonians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

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 78.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ascenonian economy, worth a remarkable 3,410 trillion Imperial Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 268,908 Imperial Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Conversion therapy coupons are a popular present for coming of age ceremonies, builders across Ascenon are blocked up with orders for new public loos, fashion magazine covers finally display realistic body images following photo-manipulation becoming illegal, and polling place volunteers are suddenly opening a huge number of offshore bank accounts. 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 Mutant Prism Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Infinite God Dragon.

Ascenon is ranked 170,921st in the world and 11,564th in The North Pacific for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 42.54 Workforce Participation Rate.
