The Third Empire of Salish-Cascadia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by HIM David VII Cascade with an even hand, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, daily referendums, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 22.026 billion Cascadians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, liberal government prioritizes Education, with Environment and Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Victoria. The average income tax rate is 40.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Cascadian economy, worth a remarkable 1,443 trillion Salish Imperials a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 65,528 Salish Imperials, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cash-strapped politicians frequently host bake sales to fund their campaigns, female newsreaders distract the nation by breastfeeding during broadcast, voting is compulsory, and citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Salish-Cascadia's national animal is the Kraken, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Salishan Pantheon.

Salish-Cascadia is ranked 4,783rd in the world and 251st in The North Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 130.93 quips per hour.
