Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Vampire Syndicate of Black Ivars is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Methuselah Ţepeș with an iron fist, and notable for its avant-garde cinema, prohibition of alcohol, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 24.141 billion Nosferatus are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crypt. The average income tax rate is 68.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient undead economy, worth a remarkable 5,664 trillion blood litres a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 234,658 blood litres, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Bris parties are all the rage, the police insist that racism does not exist, the installation of street lights across remote goat tracks has left citizens bemused, and Bat is one of the most popular forenames in Black Ivars. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Black Ivars's national animal is the bat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is necromancy.

Black Ivars is ranked 250th in the South Pacific and 12,032nd in the world for Lowest Crime Rates, scoring 170.166 on the Relative Freedom From Crime Index.
