The Superior State of Portals is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Director Tobias Wolf with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, prohibition of alcohol, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed population of 770 million Portalsians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Portals City. The average income tax rate is 50.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Portalsian economy, worth 81.3 trillion Portalsian Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 105,595 Portalsian Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The nation is stuck in permanent election mode as politicians demand constant do-overs, the colors pink and purple are banned from military unit insignia, veteran cops reminisce over their heavy armor days, and the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Portals City. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Portals's national animal is the Coyote, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Portals is ranked 60,131st in the world and 5th in The Weird Dock in Savannah for Most Avoided, scoring 14.04 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
