The United Commonwealth of Ascvalion is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Chancellor Anthony McCarthy with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. 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 60.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Ascvalian economy, worth 91.9 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 108,376 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pawn shop reality shows dominate basic cable, the nation refuses to provide international aid, the nation has nearly as many history museums as Ascvalians, and political speeches always take place at sunset to a background of patriotic power ballads. 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 28,958th in the world and 2nd in Core Quadrant for Most Developed, scoring 77.55 on the Human Development Index.
