The Blood-sucking Horror of Vampiric Hummingbirds is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Fearless Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, daily referendums, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 15.884 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 685 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 3,449th in the world and 6th in The Atheist Empire for Longest Average Lifespans, with 90.72 Years.
