The United Commonwealth of Ascvalion is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Chancellor Anthony McCarthy with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and compulsory gun ownership. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 822 million Ascvalians 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 medium-sized, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vallengard. The average income tax rate is 60.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Ascvalian economy, worth 89.0 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 108,308 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Statue-sitting has replaced the stake-out as the dullest form of police duty, the government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters, Chancellor Anthony McCarthy's luxurious new home has been designated as a protected cultural heritage site, and airplane passengers who purchase "basic economy" tickets are often assigned seats in the lavatory. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ascvalion's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Ascvalion is ranked 53,716th in the world and 2nd in Core Quadrant for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 60.03 Effective Tax Rate.
