The Imperial Commonwealth of Ascenon is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Alphonse with an iron fist, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, keen interest in outer space, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 18.639 billion Ascenonians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cadia. The average income tax rate is 86.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ascenonian economy, worth a remarkable 5,918 trillion Imperial Credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 317,551 Imperial Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles, the government considers it a sacred duty to video bikini-clad beach swimmers, crowded passenger trains are near-silent save for the soft tap of fingers on touchscreens, and music teachers are commonly seen busking in order to fund their music programs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ascenon's national animal is the Mutant Prism Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Infinite God Dragon.

Ascenon is ranked 43,510th in the world and 2,289th in The North Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 51.65 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
