Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Flaming Red Empire of Vampiric Hummingbirds is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Fearless Leader Nick with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, hatred of cheese, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 13.395 billion Vampiric Hummingbirdsians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Environment, with Industry and Education also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Roost. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Vampiric Hummingbirdsian economy, worth 767 trillion gold coins a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 57,295 gold coins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 212,946 per year while the poor average 10,831, a ratio of 19.7 to 1.

Bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms, companies balk at paying their workers, it is a common belief that a sport isn't sport if there are no decapitations, and Fearless Leader Nick panders to nontraditional families. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Vampiric Hummingbirds's national animal is the hummingbird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The Cult of Transylvania.

Vampiric Hummingbirds is ranked 23rd in The Atheist Empire and 131,713th in the world for Most Primitive, scoring -190 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
