The Vampire Syndicate of Black Ivars is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Methuselah Ţepeș with an iron fist, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, triple-decker prams, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 33.623 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, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry, Healthcare, and Education also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crypt. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 71.9%.
The frighteningly efficient undead economy, worth a remarkable 9,141 trillion blood barrels 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 black market in Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, 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 an amazing 271,895 blood barrels, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 806,046 per year while the poor average 71,994, a ratio of 11.2 to 1.
Music teachers are commonly seen busking in order to fund their music programs, a paperwork error has naval privateers being directed to attack land-locked nations, ambitious "businessmen" use their children to sell and advertise their products, and citizens know not to ask what their country can do for them but what they can do as chained slaves for their country. Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Black Ivars's national animal is the bat, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is necromancy.
