The Social Kingdom of The Cascadian Bioregion is a huge, safe nation, notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 591 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 68.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Cascadian economy, worth 43.2 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 73,157 Cascadian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The path to inner peace is paved with state-mandated punishment, wealthy pranksters dump refuse on unsuspecting citizens from up high, a fashion designer has been arrested for inciting hatred after claiming redheads couldn't pull off vermillion, and politicians have to be granted day-release from prison to speak on bills. 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 113,951st in the world and 5,449th in The North Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 59.81 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
