The Imperial Commonwealth of Ascenon is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Alphonse with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ritual sacrifices, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 13.188 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.
The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pandosut. The average income tax rate is 85.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Ascenonian economy, worth a remarkable 3,665 trillion Imperial Credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 277,915 Imperial Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.
The national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, the welfare administration's new sweeping authority has forced the poor and needy to shop from pre-approved grocery lists, retired racing Mutant Prism Dragons are served truffles for breakfast, and warfare increasingly resembles a video game. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ascenon's national animal is the Mutant Prism Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Infinite God Dragon.
