The Avant-Garde Commonwealth of Ascended Union is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Founder Ulysses with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 789 million Ascended Citizens have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Enoch. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 67.0%.
The frighteningly efficient Ascended Citizen economy, worth 97.4 trillion Energy Credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 123,490 Energy Credits, with the richest citizens earning 6.9 times as much as the poorest.
People often get liposuction to reduce their air fares, Founder Ulysses has just been declared ruler of Ascended Union in an international press conference, gossip magazines have pictures of Founder Ulysses sunbathing on the beach with political rivals, and mall countdown clocks warn that there are only 364 more shopping days until Maxxmas. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ascended Union's national animal is the Imperial Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
