The Republic of Port Ember is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Edward Flint with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, unlimited-speed roads, and national health service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 3.614 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, outspoken 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 3.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Port Emberian economy, worth 938 trillion Aurums a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 259,548 Aurums, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,125,082 per year while the poor average 38,021, a ratio of 29.6 to 1.

Citizens are tied down and forced to watch educational videos on empathy, employers may fire workers without giving any reason, the nation has recently been attributed to the funding of terrorist organisations, and a girl's success in life is often linked to her performance in beauty pageants. Crime is well under control. 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 13,029th in the world and 2nd in Northern Ocean for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 1 Valid Endorsements.
