The Republic of Port Ember is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Edward Flint with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, digital currency, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 4.615 billion Port Emberians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port Ember Megalopolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Port Emberian economy, worth a remarkable 1,402 trillion Aurums a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 303,997 Aurums, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,405,811 per year while the poor average 39,659, a ratio of 35.4 to 1.

Wilderness-dwelling hermits are surprised to find railway stations on their front doorsteps, radio stations offer prizes to callers who can guess this month's most endangered species, well-off serial killers write monthly checks to avoid jail time, and the people's love for Edward Flint is little more than self-preservation. Crime is totally unknown. Port Ember's national animal is the Komodo Dragon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Waukeenism.

Port Ember is ranked 826th in the world and 2nd in Northern Ocean for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 276,029.45 Standard Monetary Units.
