The People's Republic of Cascaria is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, public floggings, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.302 billion Cascarians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Environment and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Education and Welfare are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 40.2%.

The thriving Cascarian economy, worth 833 trillion Cascars a year, is extremely specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing and Retail. Average income is 67,767 Cascars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 234,094 per year while the poor average 14,347, a ratio of 16.3 to 1.

Women mime their gynaecological symptoms with hand-puppets, public toilets are famed for their rear entries, city budgets are spent entirely on supporting the town royalty, and cruel and unusual punishments are being crowdsourced. Crime is a problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Cascaria's national animal is the Ferret, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Shinto.

Cascaria is ranked 30,777th in the world and 2nd in AnCa for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 5.19 Bank.
