The Avant-Garde Commonwealth of Ascended Union is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its public floggings, free-roaming dinosaurs, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 755 million 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Enoch. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 67.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Ascended Citizen economy, worth 92.6 trillion Energy Credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 122,706 Energy Credits, with the richest citizens earning 6.8 times as much as the poorest.

Agricultural employees work for peanuts, it is popularly believed that "cheese every day keeps disaster away", young girls and senior citizens alike can be spotted wearing colourful short shorts, and there has been a rapid increase of noise complaints over the sound of buzzing bees. 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.

Ascended Union is ranked 185,755th in the world and 2,107th in 10000 Islands for Most Extreme, scoring 5.93 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
