The Empire of The Cascade Regions is a massive, safe nation, ruled by President Erik Paul with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, smutty television, and infamous sell-swords. The compassionate, hard-working population of 2.351 billion 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Seattle. The average income tax rate is 69.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cascadian economy, worth 357 trillion Cascadian Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 152,260 Cascadian Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Cascadian housewives become unusually flustered when thinking about President Erik Paul, officials pull all-nighters to check immigrants for potential links to terrorists, statistics show that terrorists often come from broken families, and dubiously qualified Skandilundian barristers keep referring to laws as 'government guidelines'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Cascade Regions's national animal is the Gray Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Cascade Regions is ranked 68,843rd in the world and 3,779th in The North Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 1,506.81 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
