The Republic of Port Ember is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Edward Flint with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, otherworldly petting zoo, and national health service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 4.587 billion Port Emberians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port Ember Megalopolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Port Emberian economy, worth a remarkable 1,390 trillion Aurums a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 303,075 Aurums, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,126,428 per year while the poor average 57,297, a ratio of 19.7 to 1.

Nations that kill a Port Emberian can expect a strongly worded letter, pandemics are over and done with by the time it takes to pass the nation's stringent border security, road signs are getting harder to read under layers of knitted woolen cardigans, and politicians that report exaggerated crowd sizes for their speeches are dismissed for being delusional. Crime is totally unknown. Port Ember's national animal is the Komodo Dragon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Waukeenism.

Port Ember is ranked 1,873rd in the world and 3rd in Northern Ocean for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 1.13 million Standard Monetary Units.
