The Imperial Empire of Ascenon is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Carrow with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 22.124 billion Ascenonians 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 relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cadia. The average income tax rate is 74.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ascenonian economy, worth a remarkable 8,661 trillion Imperial Credits a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 391,510 Imperial Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A recent political speech drew the ire of nerds everywhere after the speaker claimed that Darth Vader was Harry Potter's father, a handful of megacorporations own every "craft brewery" in the nation, government statisticians explain census inaccuracies by declaring that "Sith happens", and colonial citizens are forced to sing the praise of the "Great Ascenonian Liberator". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ascenon's national animal is the Mutated Lizard-Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Infinite God Dragon.

Ascenon is ranked 4,942nd in the world and 269th in The North Pacific for Largest Governments, scoring 41.1 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
