The Enlightened Empire of The Paradimensional Ascendancy is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Supreme Leader Sophis with an even hand, and remarkable for its flagrant waste-dumping, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 7.232 billion Sovereign Entities are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

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 4,000 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 553,198 Digital Units, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,763,625 per year while the poor average 29,662, a ratio of 126 to 1.

It's considered a civil right to be allowed to neglect and mistreat your own children, a degree in Supreme Leader Sophis Science with a Minor in Awesomeology starts many political careers, beating enemies to death with a baseball bat is legal if done within nine innings, and for the sake of 'public interest' news programs tell viewers how to home-make Sarin gas bombs. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, 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 22,065th in the world and 2nd in Sivella for Most Developed, scoring 73.46 on the Human Development Index.
