The Republic of Portsville is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, anti-smoking policies, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.057 billion Portsvilleans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while International Aid isn't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 62.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Portsvillean economy, worth 125 trillion deniers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 118,683 deniers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, traffic jams are a common sight due to construction work from a massive overhaul of the nation's freeways, ambitious "businessmen" use their children to sell and advertise their products, and going on a diet invalidates your passport. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Portsville's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Portsville is ranked 16,844th in the world and 7th in Testregionia for Most Developed, scoring 79.19 on the Human Development Index.
