The Federal Republic of Higher Cascadia is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 768 million Higher Cascadians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vancouver. The average income tax rate is 32.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The Higher Cascadian economy, worth 34.5 trillion Dollars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Furniture Restoration, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 44,940 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.
International tensions are high as Higher Cascadia threatens any government with the audacity to arrest its citizens, more than one company makes the board game Monopoly, the regional delicacy of chocolate bombes is deadlier than an unexploded bomb, and anti-government web sites are springing up. Crime is totally unknown. Higher Cascadia's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
