The Vampire Syndicate of Black Ivars is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Methuselah Ţepeș with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 21.498 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 72%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

Citizens must pay to enjoy Black Ivars's pristine beaches, the nation has an international reputation for compassion, the nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields, and national parks have long lines of different gender-specific 'Porta-Pottys'. Crime is a 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 15th in the South Pacific and 1,507th in the world for Largest Populations, with 21,498 Capita (millions).
