The Free Land of Port Myreal is a gargantuan, cultured nation, renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, unlimited-speed roads, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 18.814 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 31.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Port Myrelian economy, worth a remarkable 4,590 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 244,017 Eight Reales Pieces, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Parents dread their examinations more than their children, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, burnt-out forty-foot-tall wicker men dot the countryside, and thousands of former welfare recipients are in a revolutionary uproar as the rest of society is enjoying a hefty tax break. 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 2,263rd in the world and 13th in NationStates for Rudest Citizens, with 210.47 Insults Per Minute.
