The Democratic States of Cascadia and Columbia is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Premier Kirkland Ricker with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, national health service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.269 billion Cascadians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vancouver. The average income tax rate is 70.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Cascadian economy, worth 640 trillion Cascadian pounds a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 102,152 Cascadian pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Old age is the nation's leading method of execution, citizens are exhausted from weekly general elections, Cascadia and Columbia's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, and local mafias have a tough time disposing of dead snitches without catching the attention of recycling authorities. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cascadia and Columbia's national animal is the woodpecker, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Cascadia and Columbia is ranked 131,804th in the world and 9th in American Union for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -3.95 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
