The Third Empire of Salish-Cascadia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by HIM David I Cascade with an even hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, smutty television, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 20.901 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 38.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The enormous but inefficient Cascadian economy, worth a remarkable 1,214 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 58,093 Salish Imperials, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

It is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, in a fit of passion HIM David I Cascade has shredded thirty years' worth of petitions, citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes, and the internet has been placed under government control. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, 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 218,338th in the world and 8,812th in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 6.8 Obesity Rate.
