The Holy Christian Dominion of Glorious Ascension is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lord Regent Holy Emperor Adam J Vader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its closed borders, prohibition of alcohol, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 2.467 billion Glorious Ascensionists are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nomen Civitatis. The average income tax rate is 60.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Glorious Ascensionian economy, worth 161 trillion Kybers a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Basket Weaving, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 65,465 Kybers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, school lunches are made with hypo-allergenic wood pulp, roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, and women across the country are tying the knot. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Glorious Ascension's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Roman Catholic Christianity.

Glorious Ascension is ranked 202,460th in the world and 1st in The Amethyst Accord for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -8.31 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
