The Vampire Syndicate of Black Ivars is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Methuselah Ţepeș with an iron fist, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, free-roaming dinosaurs, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 26.703 billion Nosferatus are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Healthcare, and Education are also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crypt. The average income tax rate is 44.3%.
The frighteningly efficient undead economy, worth a remarkable 5,735 trillion blood litres a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 214,778 blood litres, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.
The Foreign Ministry thinks an eye for an eye is a blindingly good idea, death row is annually emptied to feed the nation's hunger for televised murder-games, parties that are too noisy are broken up to prevent disturbing wildlife, and perverts across the land rejoice after 'sexual harassment' was recently renamed 'persuasive courting'. Crime is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Black Ivars's national animal is the bat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is necromancy.
