Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The People's Dominion of The Ascendancy is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 11.9 billion Ascendants 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Romegrad. The average income tax rate is 62.4%.

The strong Ascendancyian economy, worth 536 trillion Credits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 45,063 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

The alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, archaeological discoveries are often followed by mysterious hamster abductions, the Federal Council of The Ascendancy has been announced as the new Head of State, and Leader is the self-declared God of all The Ascendancy. Crime is totally unknown. The Ascendancy's national animal is the Ascendant One, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cosmarchy.

The Ascendancy is ranked 102,545th in the world and 1st in The Ascendancy for Most Avoided, scoring 1.9 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
