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 renowned for its public floggings, unlimited-speed roads, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 14.023 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 599 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 186,149 per year while the poor average 6,225, a ratio of 29.9 to 1.

Urban high-volume mailers now receive their mail via chauffeur-driven limousines, disadvantaged neighbourhoods have become no-go areas after sundown, census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, and wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms. 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 176,773rd in the world and 39th in The Atheist Empire for Lowest Crime Rates, with 4.1 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
