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, intelligent population of 7.761 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.

Cheese has become the new icon of political dissent, citizens select which government department gets their income tax Denariuses each year, heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, and a National Academy regulates grammar and usage. 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 77th in The North Pacific and 2,120th in the world for Most Cultured, scoring 97 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
