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 unlimited-speed roads, keen interest in outer space, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 14.651 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 632 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 43,148 gold coins, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 173,892 per year while the poor average 7,155, a ratio of 24.3 to 1.

The government is ignoring the latest terrorist atrocities in The Roost for fear of causing a fuss, all streets are privately owned toll roads, the nation's leading climatologists are investigating animal flatulence in efforts to reduce methane emissions, and it is a crime to operate a combine harvester while intoxicated. 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 16,557th in the world and 21st in The Atheist Empire for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 208.93 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
