The Oppressed Peoples of The Ascendant Oats is a very large, orderly nation, notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, parental licensing program, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 188 million Oats 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, well-organized government prioritizes Spirituality, with Law & Order, Administration, and Industry also on the agenda, while International Aid is ignored. The average income tax rate is 39.2%.

The very strong Ascendant economy, worth 13.8 trillion Gibs Me Dats a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Soda Sales, Woodchip Exports, Pizza Delivery, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 73,528 Gibs Me Dats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Dynamite sales and concert audiences are booming, airplane passengers have been known to stuff pillows in their jackets to get extra arm room, scenic tours are unheard of after most environmental laws were abolished, and Oats have replaced bears in a popular idiom. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. The Ascendant Oats's national animal is the Dark Elf, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Ascendant Oats is ranked 70,697th in the world and 2nd in Anime Girls for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 2,182.3 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
