Free Kaskadiya

Population227 million


The Democratic Republic of Free Kaskadiya is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 227 million Free Kaskadiyans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 67.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Free Kaskadiyan economy, worth 1.45 trillion rubleses 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 mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Retail. Average income is 6,380 rubleses, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Free Kaskadiya's national animal is the bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Free Kaskadiya is ranked 164,419th in the world and 24th in The Commonwealth Federation TCF for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 39.51 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
