The Infinite Empire of Ascenon is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Horus with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 8.17 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.

Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, the nation leads The North Pacific in per capita stalking, pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are sold freely by the government, and guns are banned. 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 531st in The North Pacific and 17,334th in the world for Shortest Average Lifespan, scoring -9 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
