Cascadia is a mega-nation that occupies territory in the western and northern portions of North America. Cascadia has since grown to be one of the largest nations in the server, with more than 50 towns from its core territories and outlying districts at its height.
The Great Cascadian Schism
In late August 2019, the Republic of Cascadia underwent a fracturing of the internal government, with a breakaway sect looking to establish Cascadia as an empire. This breakaway sect has led to an internal crisis with two factions of supporters supporting both the establishment of a Cascadian Empire and the continued existence of the Republic of Cascadia.
What followed was the Cascadian Republic slowly disintegrating, with provinces either seceding or declaring independence.
Cascadia is a Democratic Republic with three branches of government, an Executive, Legislative, and Judaical branch. The Executive branch of the government consists of the President, Vice President, and the Cabinet, which consists of various appointed Secretaries to their respective Departments, that oversee the day-to-day operation of the Cascadian government.
The Legislative branch consists of the Senate, which votes on proposals and laws which are either implemented or rejected.
The Judaical Branch is the Supreme Court, consisting of a Governor from each Cascadian Province.
The major departments of Cascadia include:
- Department of Defense (DOD)
- Department of Development (DODE)
- Department of Intelligence (DOI)
- Department of Recruitment (DOR)
The Department of Defense (DOD) is run by the Secretary of Defense, the Secretary of Defense also holds the highest rank in the military. Following the Secretary of Defense, the ranks of the military follow down in order:
Recruits are a member of the military who has no experience, they learn the basics of each platoon then are assigned by their General to a platoon. Once Recruits has learned the essentials of the military, they will automatically be promoted to Soldiers. A Soldier's duty is to obey orders of their Commanders on the battlefield or on training operations. Once Soldiers are promoted to Commander, they begin to hold the reigns of leadership over a platoon. The duties of a Commander include: Leading their platoon in battle or training operations, tracking the accomplishments of their Soldiers, and being informed by Generals of what their objectives are for a mission. A Commander will remain as such until selected by the Secretary of Defense to be promoted to a General. A General's duties include: Collaborating with the Secretary of Defense in executing military objectives, determining consequences for insubordinate behavior, constructing weekly training operations, and coordinating troops in times of war. The duties of the Secretary of Defense include being the representative of the Cascadian volunteer army. Manage the recruitment of military personnel, and fill the roles of the three essential units: Infantry, Artillery, and Reconnaissance. Establish and maintain weekly and routine military training exercises to uphold a strong defense. Provide the Senate with estimations for military spending. Be the holder of funds provided to spend on the military and ensure that the funds are spent accordingly to the orders of the Senate. Advise the President and Senate on matters of national security. Ensure that all towns are guaranteed equal protection by the military. Appoint Commanders to become Generals.
The military will be completely made of volunteers and all military operations will be optional for Soldiers to attend, however, when in attendance of a military operation all military personnel will obey only the orders of their superiors and will only act by their will. Any error in obeying commands will result in that Soldier facing repercussions as their General sees fit. These repercussions include but are not limited to demotion in rank, withdrawal/temporary suspension from the military, or alternative repercussions.
