The Vaporwave Commonwealth of Ascended Union is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Mac Tonight with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, pith helmet sales, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 5.392 billion Ascended Citizens 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Virtual Plaza. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 33.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Ascended Citizen economy, worth 784 trillion Vapors a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 145,435 Vapors, with the richest citizens earning 9.4 times as much as the poorest.

Chocolate in Ascended Union has its flavour enhanced by the salty tears of enslaved factory workers, ambitious "businessmen" use their children to sell and advertise their products, the government regularly reassures citizens that there are no monsters under their beds, and sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Ascended Union's national animal is the AriZona Iced Tea, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is V A P O R W A V E.

Ascended Union is ranked 78,282nd in the world and 142nd in Capitalist Paradise for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 2,860.46 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
