The Republic of Future Cascadia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Governor with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 15.981 billion Future Cascadians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Salem. The average income tax rate is 41.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Future Cascadian economy, worth a remarkable 2,807 trillion Casnaras a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 175,702 Casnaras, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Colonial citizens are forced to sing the praise of the "Great Future Cascadian Liberator", signatures have been replaced with illegible scribbles, strict term limits have been applied to all elected offices, and incarcerated crime lords manage their empires from massage tables. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 7th in Lazarus for Longest Average Lifespans, with 100.68 years.
