The Democratic Republic of Porton is a colossal, socially progressive nation, renowned for its national health service, smutty television, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 6.02 billion Portonians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Seva. The average income tax rate is 67.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Portonian economy, worth 986 trillion Marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 163,818 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

It can be a real jungle in a modern courtroom, factories grind to a halt every time there is an election, the thin blue line is composed of picketing police officers demanding better pensions, and every workday begins with group therapy. Crime is totally unknown. Porton's national animal is the Bearded Vulture, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Porton is ranked 265,026th in the world and 9,040th in the West Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -11.14 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
