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 remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, zero percent divorce rate, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 25.263 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 are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crypt. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 32.6%.

The frighteningly efficient undead economy, worth a remarkable 5,237 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 207,322 blood litres, with the richest citizens earning 6.3 times as much as the poorest.

Over-inflated fears of a "Y1" bug have turned humble IT workers into millionaires (Black Ivars has found 4 easter eggs), the military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms, the average person needs three full-time jobs just to get by, and claiming to have performed the Heimlich Maneuver is a popular defense for assault charges. 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 14,696th in the world and 352nd in the South Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 76,442.36 Standard Monetary Units.
