Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Vampire Syndicate of Black Ivars is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Methuselah Ţepeș with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, punitive income tax rates, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 23.035 billion Nosferatus have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

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 68.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient undead economy, worth a remarkable 5,267 trillion blood litres a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 228,691 blood litres, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

A well-funded social safety net protects the unfortunate, schoolchildren have twice-weekly sex education classes, even doll houses and dog kennels have to be able to withstand rigorous earthquake testing, and homeless people are periodically found dead upon altars to assorted deities. 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 540th in the South Pacific and 20,914th in the world for Largest Public Transport Department, scoring 40 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
