Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Flaming Red Peaceniks of Vampiric Hummingbirds is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Fearless Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, absence of drug laws, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 11.928 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 aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Roost. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Vampiric Hummingbirdsian economy, worth 686 trillion drachmas 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 57,536 drachmas, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 200,479 per year while the poor average 12,022, a ratio of 16.7 to 1.

Citizens are regularly found digging for treasure in their gardens, prison visits increase substantially during election years, Hummingbird is one of the most popular forenames in Vampiric Hummingbirds, and students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas. 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 42nd in The Atheist Empire and 144,060th in the world for Shortest Average Lifespan, scoring -49 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
