The Confederation of United Cascadian Peoples is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Joint Confederal Commission with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.638 billion Cascadians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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 91.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming United Cascadian Peoplesian economy, worth 367 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 and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 101,044 Cascadian Silver Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Putting houses on stilts is elevating house porches and prices alike, late night talk show hosts are having a field day over Joint Confederal Commission's questionably sane new coalition partners, the government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters, and the nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees. 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, and its national religion is Atheism.

United Cascadian Peoples is ranked 121,044th in the world and 250th in Thaecia for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 667.51 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
