The Free Land of Port Myreal is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 18.838 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, although Industry and Environment are also considered important, while Law & Order and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port Town. The average income tax rate is 30.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Port Myrelian economy, worth a remarkable 4,569 trillion Eight Reales Pieces a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 242,587 Eight Reales Pieces, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Port Town to enjoy their national art, the government is giving peace a chance, teddy bear James Dean (aka "the Rebel Without the Claws") helps convince kids that candy cigarettes are cool, and Port Myreal is notorious for its citizens' infidelity. 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 frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Port Myreal is ranked 7,689th in the world and 24th in NationStates for Nudest, with 225 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
