The Republic of Portsville is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its enslaved workforce, ritual sacrifices, and compulsory gun ownership. The compassionate, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.324 billion Portsvilleans are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 52.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Portsvillean economy, worth 316 trillion deniers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 136,160 deniers, with the richest citizens earning 6.5 times as much as the poorest.

Athletic teenagers are among the wealthiest members of society, parents must choose their children's names from a government-mandated master list, frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security, and all-natural foods are becoming a major fad. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Portsville's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Portsville is ranked 24,415th in the world and 13th in Testregionia for Most Developed, scoring 76.93 on the Human Development Index.
