Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Vampire Syndicate of Black Ivars is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Methuselah Ţepeș with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, ubiquitous missile silos, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 22.571 billion Nosferatus have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crypt. The average income tax rate is 64.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient undead economy, worth a remarkable 4,917 trillion blood litres a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 217,864 blood litres, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are bombarded with advertising from their compulsory miniature radios, fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, the government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles, and wounded veterans can only get prosthetics if they agree to become walking billboards for the arms industry. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. 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 5,953rd in the South Pacific and 131,320th in the world for Healthiest Citizens, with -4 Standard Bananas Ingested per capita per day.
