The Avant-Garde Commonwealth of Ascended Union is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Founder Ulysses with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, keen interest in outer space, and enforced nudity. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 2.449 billion Ascended Citizens 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Enoch. The average income tax rate is 78.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Ascended Citizen economy, worth 318 trillion Energy Credits a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 129,967 Energy Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Coffee-addicted citizens look forward to baristas getting their name wrong at local coffee shops, nations across the world are quick to praise Founder Ulysses's good looks and intellectual prowess, children are terrified that the 'flying police monster' will come to take them away in the night, and supervisors in Ascended Union commonly tie bells on their necks to alert employees of their presence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ascended Union's national animal is the Imperial Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Surrealism.
