The Enlightened Empire of The Paradimensional Ascendancy is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Supreme Leader Sophis with an even hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, absence of drug laws, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 8.807 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 5,084 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 577,277 Digital Units, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,376,335 per year while the poor average 5,584, a ratio of 962 to 1.

Pallbearers at military funerals dive for cover when they hear the three-volley salute, it's considered bigoted to assume that a violent psychopath might be dangerous, stockbrokers dream of getting rich by writing textbooks, and small businesses are gobbled up almost daily by corporate giants. 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 208,447th in the world and 2nd in Sivella for Lowest Crime Rates, with 2.38 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
