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 21.198 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 69%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

Vegetarianism is compulsory, military spending is on the increase, most of the military's funding goes into researching space-age weaponry, and schoolchildren have twice-weekly sex education classes. Crime is a 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 7th in the South Pacific and 478th in the world for Rudest Citizens, with 495.6 Insults Per Minute (net).
