The Vampire Syndicate of Black Ivars is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Methuselah Ţepeș with an iron fist, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 20.97 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defence, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crypt. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 71%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

Police officers ride the swiftest bats, fresh food is a thing of the past due to onerous testing standards, birds and children's kites are regularly brought down by anti-aircraft fire, and bats are becoming popular in pet stores nationwide. Crime is moderate. Black Ivars's national animal is the bat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, its national religion is necromancy, and its currency is the blood litre.

Black Ivars is ranked 3,513th in the South Pacific and 110,235th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -289 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
