The Queendom of La Ascension is a massive, genial nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, compulsory vegetarianism, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 2.095 billion Ascensios are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Spirituality, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arcangel Miguel. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 60.1%.

The La Ascensionian economy, worth 108 trillion gold coins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 51,838 gold coins, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.

Priests are being drafted by the church load, pushy mums tell their kids to be doctors and engineers but steer them away from being penniless lawyers, the wearing and manufacture of fur apparel is banned, and the sanitised and dull music festivals of La Ascension are famed for their reasonable volume levels. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. La Ascension's national animal is the white magical rabbit, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

La Ascension is ranked 104,778th in the world and 4,213th in the South Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 25.08 on the Hayek Index.
