“Sex & Violence”Methuselah Ţepeș
|Category: Inoffensive Centrist Democracy|
Regional Influence: Minnow
Location: the South Pacific
The Vampire Syndicate of Black Ivars is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Methuselah Ţepeș with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, avowedly heterosexual populace, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 22.102 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 47.9%.
The frighteningly efficient undead economy, worth a remarkable 4,919 trillion blood litres a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 222,600 blood litres, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.
Psychological disorders are a taboo subject, graffiti graces every city's streets, photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in Methuselah Ţepeș's bedroom, and military barracks resemble five-star hotels. 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.
