Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Holy Empire of NSferatu is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 14.601 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, well-organized government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 90.2%.

The strong NSferatuan economy, worth 591 trillion vials of blood a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, extremely specialized black market in Gambling and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 40,508 vials of blood, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

Voting is voluntary, elections have been outlawed, and military spending is on the increase. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. NSferatu's national animal is the vampire bat, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

NSferatu is ranked 14th in The Refuge and 99,356th in the world for Most Politically Free, scoring 22 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
