The Republic of Future Cascadia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Governor with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful population of 10.557 billion Future 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 Administration, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Salem. The average income tax rate is 97.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Future Cascadian economy, worth a remarkable 2,052 trillion Casnaras a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 194,397 Casnaras, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dog owners proudly declare that their pups can predict when the mailman will arrive, RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework, and Governor is considering changing the nation's name to Blackacre. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Future Cascadia's national animal is the Pacific Northwest Tree Octopus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Future Cascadia is ranked 138th in the world and 2nd in Lazarus for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 220.36 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
