Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Vampire Syndicate of Black Ivars is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Methuselah Ţepeș with an iron fist, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, prohibition of alcohol, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 25.477 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.

The medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry and Healthcare are also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crypt. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 35.7%.

The frighteningly efficient undead economy, worth a remarkable 5,320 trillion blood litres a year, is fairly diversified and 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 208,824 blood litres, with the richest citizens earning 6.3 times as much as the poorest.

Black Ivars's newly-famous raindances to summon storms instead attract tourists from all over the South Pacific, Hide and Seek With Cuddle Bear is the most popular video game in the nation, the World Vampire Syndicate Games have been won again by Black Ivars as no other country cares enough to compete, and weapons produced by newly nationalized armaments factories have been found to contain sawdust instead of gunpowder. Crime is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Black Ivars's national animal is the bat, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is necromancy.

Black Ivars is ranked 19,059th in the world and 945th in the South Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 6,551.38 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
