Port Royal is a pirate republic in the Carribean. It does not exist in historical starts. Port Royal appears only after an event.


All countries that colonize Jamaica can get the event to play as or release Port Royal as an independent nation.[1]


Msg event.pngThe Pirates of Port Royal

We have awarded a great number of letters of marque to enterprising privateers in the Caribbean with the goal of harassing [spanish_main_country.GetAdjective] shipping. These privateers have made their home in the town of Port Royal on [487.GetName], where they have found great opportunity for plunder.

The willingness of Port Royal’s authorities to deal in stolen goods has also attracted a less savory sort; pirates who bear no letter of marque and recognize no sovereign have begun to make their bases on the island. The appeals of lawlessness have not been lost on our privateers; several have already abandoned their commissions and turned pirate. The gossip in [Root.Capital.GetCapitalName] is that Port Royal has become a pirate utopia, a Sodom of the New World.
