The Third Empire of Salish-Cascadia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by HIM Victor VII Cascade with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, humorless population of 24.473 billion Cascadians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Victoria. The average income tax rate is 44.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The enormous but inefficient Cascadian economy, worth a remarkable 1,410 trillion Salish Imperials a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 57,646 Salish Imperials, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

In a fit of passion HIM Victor VII Cascade has shredded thirty years' worth of petitions, all recreational drugs are legal, citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes, and political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Salish-Cascadia's national animal is the Kraken, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Salishan Pantheon.

Salish-Cascadia is ranked 287,473rd in the world and 7,042nd in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -27.28 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
