The Enlightened Empire of The Paradimensional Ascendancy is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Supreme Leader Sophis with an even hand, and notable for its closed borders, pith helmet sales, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 9.288 billion Sovereign Entities enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the Spire. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Ascendant economy, worth a remarkable 5,437 trillion Digital Units a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Soda Sales. Average income is a breathtaking 585,395 Digital Units, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,451,942 per year while the poor average 5,662, a ratio of 962 to 1.

The streets are ravaged by murder and violence to prove political points, new urban roads are threatening city parks, literature classes frequently go on field trips to rock concerts, and high school career advisors advise belligerent loners to consider vigilantism. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Paradimensional Ascendancy's national animal is the Opticated Mellowbird, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is the stance that it is so very silly.

The Paradimensional Ascendancy is ranked 119th in the world and 1st in Sivella for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 39,605.8 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
