Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Flaming Red Empire of Vampiric Hummingbirds is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Fearless Leader Nick with a fair hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, public floggings, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 13.847 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 minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Environment, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Roost. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Vampiric Hummingbirdsian economy, worth 592 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 42,780 gold coins, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 180,975 per year while the poor average 6,537, a ratio of 27.7 to 1.

Major corporations receive tax breaks for no apparent reason, the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods, and street gangs rule most of the nation's major cities. 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 176,174th in the world and 31st in The Atheist Empire for Most Primitive, scoring -183.58 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
