The Free Land of Port Myreal is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, smutty television, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 18.854 billion Port Myrelians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, with Industry and Environment also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port Town. The average income tax rate is 29.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Port Myrelian economy, worth a remarkable 4,587 trillion Eight Reales Pieces a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 243,315 Eight Reales Pieces, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Fraternities are notorious for drunken hooliganism, relations with Dàguó have warmed from frosty to chilly, the space program has been scrapped in order to focus on more terrestrial pursuits, and the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Port Myreal's national animal is the Kraken, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Port Myreal is ranked 1,484th in the world and 11th in NationStates for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 62,541.69 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
