The Most Serene Republic of Ascendas is a gargantuan, efficient nation, renowned for its public floggings, smutty television, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed population of 32.321 billion Ascendasians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Education, although Law & Order, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ascendas Capitol. The average income tax rate is 9.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ascendasian economy, worth a remarkable 6,378 trillion Ascendas Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 197,335 Ascendas Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has little issue with allowing its citizens to languish in foreign jails, the nation's once beautiful countryside has turned brown as farmers spray potent pesticides, citizens receive notices of disenfranchisement along with their parking tickets, and the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ascendas's national animal is the Bald Head Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Bald Eaglenism.

Ascendas is ranked 10,296th in the world and 1st in Asia Pacific Economic Group for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100.08 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
