The Imperial Empire of Ascenon is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Carrow with an iron fist, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, infamous sell-swords, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 21.632 billion Ascenonians 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cadia. The average income tax rate is 71.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ascenonian economy, worth a remarkable 8,386 trillion Imperial Credits a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 387,680 Imperial Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Both criminals and civilians are DOA, military spending recently hit a new high, the lasting legacy of the current generation is a million years of buried radioactivity, and the crispy fried liver of a Mutated Lizard-Dragon is prized as a tasty treat by vagrants. 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 Mutated Lizard-Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Infinite God Dragon.

Ascenon is ranked 4,923rd in the world and 179th in The North Pacific for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 111,652.01 Standard Monetary Units.
