The Cascades of Nourth America is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Prime Minister Daniel J Evans with a fair hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, soft-spoken computers, and state-planned economy. The democratic population of 5.264 billion Cascadians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Administration also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Olympia. The average income tax rate is 11.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Cascadian economy, worth 249 trillion Dollar $s a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, Soda Sales, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 47,357 Dollar $s, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Scenic tours are unheard of after most environmental laws were abolished, earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, immigrant families holding hands get stopped at the border, and cheering flag-waving citizens don't like to think too hard about politics. Crime is relatively low. Nourth America's national animal is the Osprey, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Nourth America is ranked 130,895th in the world and 4th in Novo Terra for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 747.77 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
