The Colony of Port Arthur PE is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 269 million Port Arthurians 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 relatively small, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Law & Order, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Port Arthur PEian economy, worth 29.2 trillion Aurums a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 108,565 Aurums, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 312,613 per year while the poor average 29,947, a ratio of 10.4 to 1.

The police double as repo men, newly-peaceful nations are forced to use assault rifles as farming tools due to a lack of funds for purchasing anything else, the World Colony Games have been won again by Port Arthur PE as no other country cares enough to compete, and anniversaries of major historical events pass unnoticed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Port Arthur PE's national animal is the Panda, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Port Arthur PE is ranked 32,118th in the world and 4th in Northern Ocean for Highest Drug Use, scoring 93.2 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
