The Republic of Port Ember is a massive, socially progressive nation, notable for its smutty television, digital currency, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.02 billion Port Emberians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The relatively small, corrupt 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 20.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Port Emberian economy, worth 391 trillion Bitcoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 193,637 Bitcoins, with the richest citizens earning 6.9 times as much as the poorest.

Paper and ink publications are subsidised by the government to keep them in the black, the law says it's okay to sell a bomb to a terrorist so long as they promise not to detonate it, drugs containing the compound "oleum de serpens" are being sold to cancer patients, and legal contracts aren't worth the paper they're written on. Crime is totally unknown. Port Ember's national animal is the Komodo Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Waukeenism.

Port Ember is ranked 29,378th in the world and 989th in Balder for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 3,530.34 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
