The Flaming Red Peaceniks of Vampiric Hummingbirds is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Fearless Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete absence of social welfare. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 9.544 billion live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, liberal government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with the Environment, although Commerce and Education are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Roost. Income tax is unheard of. 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.
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 crippling, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Vampiric Hummingbirds's national animal is the hummingbird, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is The Cult of Transylvania, and its currency is the drachma.
