The Pacific Northwest

Population1.022 billion

Leaderthe only one here who hates coffee

CurrencyCascadian Dollar

The United Hipster Nation of The Pacific Northwest is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by the only one here who hates coffee with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, free-roaming dinosaurs, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.022 billion Pacific Northwesterners enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Seattle. The average income tax rate is 81.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pacific Northwestern economy, worth 104 trillion Cascadian Dollars a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 102,118 Cascadian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The thin blue line is composed of picketing police officers demanding better pensions, all statues and paintings of dogs are being destroyed to avoid offending cat-lovers, witnesses have to run a gauntlet of mob enforcers to testify at trials, and the new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass". Crime is totally unknown. The Pacific Northwest's national animal is the beaver, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Pacific Northwest is ranked 11,204th in the world and 41st in Refugia for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 10,310.38 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
