The Imperial Empire of Ascenon is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Carrow with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 24.862 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 medium-sized, 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 78.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ascenonian economy, worth a remarkable 9,978 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. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 401,344 Imperial Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Funeral directors are frequently looking at their watches during funerals, the Department of Health is snowed under by requests for crisper ciabatta and tenderer tagliatelle, the seventh son of a seventh son is fated to be a millionaire, and Loud Patriotic Music Day has been ranked the seventh best new holiday of the year. 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 2,426th in the world and 89th in The North Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 7,353.65 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
