Ever dark

Population2.673 billion


The Empire of Ever dark is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its flagrant waste-dumping, free-roaming dinosaurs, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.673 billion Drows are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Industry, and Administration. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 27.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Ever darkish economy, worth 471 trillion Nights a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Retail, and Gambling. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 176,320 Nights, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 567,109 per year while the poor average 41,521, a ratio of 13.7 to 1.

There's a lot of babies crying for milk in the middle of the day, years of counter-terrorism planning are foiled by small details, the aphorism "there's no need to argue" has been dismissed by Drows, and the people consider response to rudeness to be an acceptable casus belli. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Ever dark's national animal is the Human, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Ever dark is ranked 207,876th in the world and 10,098th in The North Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -23.39 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
