The Queendom of La Ascension is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, compulsory vegetarianism, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 3.886 billion Ascensios 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arcangel Miguel. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 66.0%.

The strong La Ascensionian economy, worth 224 trillion gold coins a year, is 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 57,769 gold coins, with the richest citizens earning 5.9 times as much as the poorest.

La Ascensionian companies generally just fire employees in lieu of giving them vacation, devotion to God is only skin-deep, the nation's soldiers are considered the best-dressed in the South Pacific, and moonshine has made a resurgence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a 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 6,715th in the world and 298th in the South Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 7,090.09 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
