The Confederation of United Cascadian Peoples is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Joint Confederal Commission with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.55 billion Cascadians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Willapa Bay. The average income tax rate is 89.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming United Cascadian Peoplesian economy, worth 149 trillion Cascadian Silver Pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Tourism. Average income is 96,606 Cascadian Silver Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Would-be emigrants are told "abandon all hope all ye who would exit here", local mafias have a tough time disposing of dead snitches without catching the attention of recycling authorities, solid-gold toilets are United Cascadian Peoplesian prisons' least expensive furnishings, and a vast monorail network carries people all over the country. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. United Cascadian Peoples's national animal is the Timber Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

United Cascadian Peoples is ranked 166,690th in the world and 221st in New Western Empire for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -17.81 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
