The Vampire Syndicate of Black Ivars is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Methuselah Ţepeș with an iron fist, and renowned for its ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 21.555 billion, 15.877 billion of whom are zombies, 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 70%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

Badminton was recently banned due to 'unacceptable violence' inherent to the game, Black Ivars's army is full of two-metre tall super-soldiers, the government keeps introducing new foreign species to combat the previous ones it has introduced, and Black Ivars's leader goes out to lunch surrounded by large men in dark glasses. Crime is a serious 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 218th in the South Pacific and 12,212th in the world for Most Dedicated Public Healthcare, scoring 71 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.

Black Ivars is currently considering its options.
