Cascadian Culture

Cascadian culture can be defined as "post-American." At it's fundamentals, most citizens of Cascadia tend to focus on non-tradition, as well as near-libertarian policies - though at times, formally aware of the complete control that the many MegaCorps hold, over the country itself. One tends to describe a Cascadian as an "American non-American."

Simply defined - typical individuals that either paid their way to become Cascadian, and have an Arch installed, are usually seen as a different type of person - one who takes great interest in technology, believes in the concept of transhumanism, and had become tired of their lives, as the rest of the world struggles with what could be defined as petty squabbles, over race, creed, religion, or national origin.

These sentiments are not usually reflected in those who were born in Cascadia, as Cascadia is all that they've ever known.

There is no national language, in Cascadia - English is the most commonly spoken, with Japanese, and Korean, competing for second place.

Typical political sentiment in Cascadia is largely complacent, for the most part, with the idea of living under a technocratic corporatocracy. Universal Basic Income pays a barely living wage, and automation has nearly completely wiped out a majority of jobs - this is why UBI exists. People that still hand-produce products, or customized versions of existing products, are considered artisans, and are highly sought-after by MegaCorps, for designer positions.

There has been a considerable amount of Asian influence in modern Cascadian culture, purely due to mass immigration.

Cascadians value the idea of self-governance, and due to automation, enjoy a large degree of self-autonomy. This is why when it comes to aesthetics, there seems to be a large focus on your typical hard-rock/punk/metal aesthetic, mixed in with your standard tech-obsessed society. On the off-hand, counter-culture is usually that of opulence, wealth, and materialism, though these sentiments flow through most groups, anyways.

The idea of a self-made businessman is typically rather attractive to the normal Cascadian. Whether or not the Corpo lifestyle is right for them, is a choice that many typically make, purely through their upbringing.

There seems to be little disregard for what the Police force, CSEC, thinks of them. Seeing CSEC purely as heavily militarized mallcops, at the end of the day - there isn't much regard for the law. CorpoCops, however, are nother story. People always respect the MegaCorps, before they respect the actual police force.

In terms of sentiment about the government, most people simply see them as an automated annoyance - with most individuals not exactly having much of an insight into what goes on within their immediate political situations.
