Regional Influence: Contender

Location: The Ascendancy


The People's Dominion of The Ascendancy is a colossal, socially progressive nation, renowned for its devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 6.59 billion The Ascendancyians 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.

The government -- a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass -- is mainly concerned with Social Welfare, although Education and Healthcare are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Ascendancy City. The average income tax rate is 36%. A substantial private sector is dominated by the Gambling industry.

Scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, all government facilities are built in the subterranean citadel of The Ascendancy City, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, and archaeological discoveries are often followed by mysterious hamster abductions. Crime is totally unknown. The Ascendancy's national animal is the Ascendant One, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Credit.

The Ascendancy is ranked 9th in The Ascendancy and 66,868th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 57 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
