The Vampire Syndicate of Black Ivars is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Methuselah Ţepeș with an iron fist, and notable for its ritual sacrifices, complete lack of prisons, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 24.624 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, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Industry and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crypt. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 24.3%.
The frighteningly efficient undead economy, worth a remarkable 4,870 trillion blood litres a year, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 197,808 blood litres, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.
NationStates is now a popular brand of laxatives despite Max Barry's protests, torture is illegal, citizens who leave the country are officially classed as traitors, and it's always rabbit season. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. 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.
