The Republic of Port Ember is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Edward Flint with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, absence of drug laws, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 4.603 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 1,396 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 303,361 Aurums, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,390,061 per year while the poor average 40,246, a ratio of 34.5 to 1.

Immigrant herding has become a national pastime, the government prefers to kill off its enemies by peaceful means, Port Emberians are regularly fired for looking at MyFace during their lunch breaks, and the Port Emberian basket weaving sector is on the brink of collapse as cheap imports flood the market. 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 128,805th in the world and 7th in Northern Ocean for Highest Crime Rates, with 2.46 Crimes Per Hour.
