The United Commonwealth of Ascvalion is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Chancellor Anthony McCarthy with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, compulsory military service, and compulsory gun ownership. The democratic, devout population of 848 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, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vallengard. The average income tax rate is 60.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Ascvalian economy, worth 92.3 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 108,861 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Political speeches always take place at sunset to a background of patriotic power ballads, Jennifer Government is a bestseller, passionate nomination battles are often as intense as general elections, and tourists visit Ascvalion to mass-moon Ascvalian politicians. 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 28,978th in the world and 2nd in Core Quadrant for Most Developed, scoring 77.55 on the Human Development Index.
