The Holy Empire of NSferatu is a gargantuan, devout nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 12.233 billion NSferatuans 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 government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defence, and the Environment. The average income tax rate is 39%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Voting is voluntary, elections have been outlawed, and military spending is on the increase. Crime is a problem. NSferatu's national animal is the vampire bat, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its currency is the vial of blood.

NSferatu is ranked 20th in The Refuge and 58,421st in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -6 on the Hayek Index.
