The Social Kingdom of The Cascadian Bioregion is a huge, safe nation, ruled by Victoria Holmes with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, unlimited-speed roads, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 870 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Vancouver. The average income tax rate is 69.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Cascadian economy, worth 73.0 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 led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 83,890 Cascadian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A determined opposition debates the relative benefits of Arial and Times New Roman for days on end, high school boys are required to pass vigorous self-mastery and sensitivity training to graduate, museums have more touchscreens on display than artifacts, and religious bigotry and a fear of outsiders have replaced religious studies in schools. 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 17,082nd in the world and 889th in The North Pacific for Lowest Crime Rates, with 84.38 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
