The Portlandian Soviet Socialist Republic (or PSSR) is a constituent nation within the Cascadian Democratic Republic. It is situated in the southeast metro area of Portland, Oregon and Vancouver, Washington deriving its name, flag, and motto from the city itself. It comprises the cities of Happy Rock, Vantucky, Stumptown, Columbia, and the capital, Clackamas, which also serves as the capital of Cascadia. As the home of the nation's capital it is seen as a central hub of commerce, diplomacy, and its politics.


Portlandia is governed as a one-party socialist state under the rule of the Soviet Socialist Party. The Party, in essence, controls all aspects of the state. The Party leader, according to its constitution and the Constitution of the PSSR and unless deemed otherwise, is the de facto Premier of Portlandia and acts as the supreme and paramount leader of the constituency. The People's Soviet is the unicameral body of the PSSR and has the power to make and pass legislation and amend the constitution. It is regarded by some, however, to be subservient to the Party and as such is largely a rubber stamp.
