The Democratic States of Cascadia and Columbia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Premier Kirkland Ricker with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.314 billion Cascadians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

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 68.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Cascadian economy, worth 468 trillion Cascadian pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 88,161 Cascadian pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Foreign despots proudly bandstand on Cascadian airwaves, shopkeepers use microscopes to verify the authenticity of banknotes, ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward, and advertisements read like science journal articles complete with extensive references. Crime is totally unknown. Cascadia and Columbia's national animal is the woodpecker, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Cascadia and Columbia is ranked 65,988th in the world and 10th in American Union for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.53 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
