Ever dark

Population422 million


The Empire of Ever dark is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, fear of technology, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 422 million Drows 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, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Spirituality, Industry, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Social Policy and Education aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 34.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ever darkish economy, worth 41.4 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 a large, well-organized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Soda Sales, Retail, and Uranium Mining. 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 98,120 Nights, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators, the nation is famous for having one of the world's largest Human hunting institutions, all writing must pass a censorship board before being allowed on the shelves, and fair-weather fans talk during plays while die-hard theatre enthusiasts stay at home. Crime is a serious problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Ever dark's national animal is the Human, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Ever dark is ranked 146,692nd in the world and 7,321st in The North Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -10 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
