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 notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, fear of technology, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 23.357 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 68.0%.

The frighteningly efficient undead economy, worth a remarkable 5,259 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 225,174 blood litres, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Shaken martini sales have soared in nations surrounding Black Ivars, cinemas play art-house movies to ever-shrinking audiences as film critics rule the industry, anti-environmentalist protesters are gunned down without mercy, and children are sent to either religious or secular schools. 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 509th in the South Pacific and 22,197th in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring 12 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
