The Democratic States of Cascadia and Columbia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Premier Kirkland Ricker with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, daily referendums, and national health service. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 8.622 billion Cascadians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Healthcare, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vancouver. The average income tax rate is 72.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Cascadian economy, worth 939 trillion Cascadian pounds a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 108,927 Cascadian pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There have been sightings of people walking around dressed in nothing but leopard-skin g-strings for 'religious reasons', Premier Kirkland Ricker's family members carry literal get-out-of-jail-free cards, the new Liquor Legitimacy Office is besieged with applications from people who have experience in "statistical sampling methods", and no suburban lawn is complete without barbed wire and landmines. 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 11,272nd in the world and 2nd in Roleplay Union The Americas for Most Inclusive, scoring 168.16 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
