The Social Kingdom of The Cascadian Bioregion is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 555 million 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Vancouver. The average income tax rate is 68.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Cascadian economy, worth 40.2 trillion Cascadian Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 72,347 Cascadian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Weird kids who eat bugs are breaking the law, convicted criminals are given free limo rides to jail, imitation is the sincerest form of felony, and families returning from international vacations are unable to get their children back into the country. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Cascadian Bioregion's national animal is the Barn Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The Cascadian Bioregion is ranked 22,087th in the world and 1,164th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 6,781.94 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
