Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Flaming Red Empire of Vampiric Hummingbirds is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Fearless Leader Nick with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 14.117 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 1.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Vampiric Hummingbirdsian economy, worth 605 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 42,873 gold coins, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 169,382 per year while the poor average 7,346, a ratio of 23.1 to 1.

Most academic research has ground to a halt, listless juries are assembled for the simplest of court cases, village elders are often called in to interpret voting outcomes in Parliament, and birth rates have hit an all-time low. 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 3,070th in the world and 2nd in The Atheist Empire for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
