The Infinite Empire of Ascenon is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Horus with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 7.955 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pandosut. The average income tax rate is 96%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Tourism and Information Technology.

Fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, the government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion, streakers swamp all public events in order to bare it all, and the explosive fireball of the disintegrating space shuttle has devastated Cape Ascenon. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ascenon's national animal is the Raptor-Demon-Pig-Thing, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Infinite God Dragon, and its currency is the Denarius.

Ascenon is ranked 3,911th in The North Pacific and 106,773rd in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -178 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
