The Universal Combined Union of The Rich Port is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by the Theotokos Council with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, hard-working, cheerful population of 17.623 billion Rich Portians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mute City. The average income tax rate is 5.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rich Portian economy, worth a remarkable 3,460 trillion simoleons a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 196,335 simoleons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Retired racing giant squids are served truffles for breakfast, lawyers are ordering red ink and 'Cease and Desist' rubber stamps in preparation for the return of copyright law, crime is on the rise as online youths compete to vlog the most shocking scenes of violence, and warfare increasingly resembles a video game. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, probably because of the absence of a police force. The Rich Port's national animal is the giant squid, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is the Observance Of The Great Spirit.

The Rich Port is ranked 14,381st in the world and 697th in Lazarus for Largest Black Market, with 12.0 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
