The Infinite Empire of Ascenon is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Albion with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, flagrant waste-dumping, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 10.699 billion Ascenonians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pandosut. The average income tax rate is 86.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Ascenonian economy, worth a remarkable 2,603 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 extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 243,324 Imperial Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.
Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, the new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, a typical fast food menu item could serve a small army, and emergency room admissions for 'stampede injuries' have skyrocketed since the introduction of weekly Sabbath Eve sales. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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, and its national religion is Infinite God Dragon.
