The Vampire Syndicate of Black Ivars is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Methuselah Ţepeș with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 21.727 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 71%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

Believers must practice religion behind church doors lest the government smite them with a mighty fine, 1% of global paper production is bound for the National Archive, the commercialisation of highly deadly weapons has instilled Black Ivars with a very polite populace, and young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables. Crime is a major 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 896th in the South Pacific and 32,220th in the world for Nudest, with 178 Cheeks per Square Mile.
