The Commonwealth of Ascion is a colossal, cultured nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 6.509 billion Ascionese are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gerha. The average income tax rate is 69.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Ascionian economy, worth 664 trillion Kreds a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 102,050 Kreds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Some of the country's most famous photographers are animals, crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting, and the government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ascion's national animal is the Seagull, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Ascion is ranked 127,239th in the world and 1st in Reign of Good Universe for Largest Black Market, with 244 billion Standard Monetary Units.
