The Infinite Empire of Ascenon is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Horus with an even hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed population of 8.089 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.

The government is avowedly atheist, citizens are permitted to carry concealed handguns, the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, and fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets. 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 43rd in The North Pacific and 2,661st in the world for Largest Defense Forces, with 317 Unexploded Ordnance per Square Mile.
