The Holy Christian Dominion of Glorious Ascension is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Lord Regent Holy Emperor Adam J Vader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 6.55 billion Glorious Ascensionists are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nomen Civitatis. The average income tax rate is 59.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Glorious Ascensionian economy, worth 452 trillion Kybers a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Basket Weaving, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 69,105 Kybers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Garden stores are not allowed to sell water butts, tours to see the 'wild men of the mountains' are popular with tourists from the big cities, midnight raids drag couples from their homes in the name of decency, and wheelchair-enabled paratroopers need access ramps to get onto planes but not off them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Glorious Ascension's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Roman Catholic Christianity.

Glorious Ascension is ranked 231,204th in the world and 4th in United Christian Empires of the West for Fattest Citizens, with 8.41 Obesity Rate.
