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 21.377 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 70%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

Military spending recently hit a new high, dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission, children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, and homeless people are periodically found dead upon altars to assorted deities. 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 3,902nd in the South Pacific and 113,177th in the world for Best Weather, with -859 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
