The Social Darwinist Imperium of The Ascendant Hive is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Oryx the Taken King with an iron fist, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, sprawling nuclear power plants, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.906 billion Ascendant Spawn are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Education are also considered important, while Social Policy and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ascendant Dreadnaught. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Ascendant Brood economy, worth a remarkable 6,791 trillion Ascendant Runes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 762,572 Ascendant Runes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Police spend their Saturday nights breaking up illegal street races, pareidolic SETI scientists swear there's a message from aliens hidden within pi, national stress about the waning heir-line is causing a rise in alopecia, and the nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Ascendant Hive's national animal is the Ascendant Worm, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is the Sword-Logic.

The Ascendant Hive is ranked 476th in the world and 12th in the Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 22,351.42 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
