The Free Land of Port Myreal is a gargantuan, efficient nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, deadly medical pandemics, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful population of 16.783 billion Port Myrelians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, with Law & Order and Spirituality not funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port Town. The average income tax rate is 38.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Port Myrelian economy, worth a remarkable 3,764 trillion Bits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Pizza Delivery. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 224,321 Bits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There are no more heroes any more, the moral worth of national allies is judged by their GDP, crackheads chase drug-loaded drones in hopes of a lucky drop, and interest rates mysteriously drop whenever the CBPM Governor goes house hunting. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Port Myreal's national animal is the Kraken, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Port Myreal is ranked 4,927th in the world and 87th in Lazarus for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 95.79 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
