The Dominion of Ages is a huge, orderly nation, ruled by Time with an iron fist, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, frequent executions, and soft-spoken computers. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 990 million Endless 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aeon. The average income tax rate is 69.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Endless economy, worth 103 trillion ticks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 104,261 ticks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Machine-peeled candied grapes come in individual packaging for the busy commuter, the tribal zone has been opened to up to 'economic interest' groups, sailors spend their shore leave helping old ladies cross the street, and the national symbol of Ages is now always featured on a skewer. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ages's national animal is the tock, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Ages is ranked 36,715th in the world and 1,831st in The North Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,143.71 Tourists Per Hour.
