Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Vampire Syndicate of Black Ivars is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Methuselah Ţepeș with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, zero percent divorce rate, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 25.903 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, with Industry and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crypt. The average income tax rate is 41.0%.

The frighteningly efficient undead economy, worth a remarkable 5,482 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 211,662 blood litres, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Landless farmers wander forlornly in the government's many national parks, companies flee the nation rather than pay their fair share of taxes, 50% of adverts on children's television are for clothes made of cotton wool, and taking hostages is a great way to influence government policy. 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 teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is necromancy.

Black Ivars is ranked 74,894th in the world and 3,120th in the South Pacific for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 41.03 Effective Tax Rate.
