The Vampire Syndicate of Black Ivars is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Methuselah Ţepeș with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 21.863 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 Defence, Law & Order, 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.

Politicians accepting drinks in bars are executed for taking bribes, mining safety laws are often more expensive than what's being mined, the dead are minced up and sold to people in burger form, and the rich are forced to sell their cars to pay for more police to prevent their cars from being stolen. Crime is a major problem. 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 66th in the South Pacific and 4,194th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 14 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
