The Republic of Port Ember is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Edward Flint with a fair hand, and notable for its frequent executions, unlimited-speed roads, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 4.592 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 8.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Port Emberian economy, worth a remarkable 1,392 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 303,171 Aurums, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,126,787 per year while the poor average 57,315, a ratio of 19.7 to 1.

Politicians that report exaggerated crowd sizes for their speeches are dismissed for being delusional, the government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, the aphorism "there's no need to argue" has been dismissed by Port Emberians, and there's no such thing as bad publicity. 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 38,654th in the world and 4th in Northern Ocean for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 4,444.98 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
