The Republic of Ascendency is a very large, genial nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, parental licensing program, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, cynical population of 107 million Ascendencyians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 74.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Ascendencyian economy, worth 3.88 trillion Ascenas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. Average income is 36,219 Ascenas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Birth rates have hit an all-time low, tourists outnumber citizens two to one, teenage girls worry that they'll be unpopular if their skirts aren't short enough, and the crispy fried liver of a Phoenix is prized as a tasty treat by vagrants. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ascendency's national animal is the Phoenix, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Ascendency is ranked 154,926th in the world and 260th in The Leftist Assembly for Most Primitive, scoring -94.6 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
