Immigration and Customs

Updated: Sep 7, 2022


Cascadia, Canada, and the United States trace their cultural identities back for centuries, and since the secession various cultural groups have disputed the legitimacy of the new national boundaries. Accordingly, old feuds grounded in demographics still persist to this day, and recent deployments have witnessed humanitarian relief organizations attempting to referee disputes between colliding cultures, religions, and extended family clans. A similar challenge could easily present itself in any future deployment to Cascadia, where both militant sectarian and ethnic groups whose national identities remain in perpetual conflict.



Cascadia’s citizens have suffered considerably from the combined effects of the global economic downturn and the mutual trade embargo that fuels ill feeling between Cascadia and the United States. A persistent, high jobless rate has caused more than 200,000 people to cross international boundaries in search of better employment opportunities, in effect the largest displacement in the Pacific Northwest since the first decade of the twentieth century. Within this transient population, 95% formerly resided in regions west of the Cascade Range, predominantly from the major population centers of Portland and Seattle. Cascadia’s citizens have suffered considerably from the combined effects of the global economic downturn and the mutual trade embargo that fuels ill feeling between Cascadia and the United States.



The citizens of Cascadia, for the most part, do not believe in the sensitivity of time, and do not view punctuality or the importance of time as the United States and most other Western countries do. Most of the people in the region do not view time as a resource and do not feel

any compulsion to effectively manage their time. Cascadian people do not make the connection between effective use of their time and production. This lack of time consciousness will likely frustrate humanitarian relief workers as they work with local populations.


Immigrations and Customs Script:


First Step, Immigration Checkpoint (Lots of questions, just like real life)

  • Did you bring your shot records? Yellow Book? (This will cause some discussions and phone calls for a waiver).

  • Have you traveled outside of Cascadia in previous 90 days?

  • Photo ID? (Don’t have it out, move to back of line)

  • Did you bring $10 for entry stamp?

  • Processed (Stamped) to Customs with ShelterBox Passports?

Second Step, Customs Checkpoint (Customs forms to Fill Out)


  • Declare any weapons (Electric Razor)

  • Fruit or meats (Jerky)

  • Alcohol

  • First level contamination = going to the back of the line, second level = quarantine

  • On and on and on ...

At this checkpoint, bags will be opened for inspection. Security is very intense. Uniformed Cascadian Soldiers will be patrolling the area looking for signs of insurgent activity. They will pull people out of the line and ask questions. Once completed, they will make the participant go back to the end of the line.
