Ever dark

Population417 million


The Empire of Ever dark is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its fear of technology, frequent executions, and exploding hoverboards. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 417 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 are ignored. The average income tax rate is 32.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ever darkish economy, worth 41.2 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 98,735 Nights, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Billions of Nights are being poured into a space program, the military is recruiting war criminals to join its weapons research teams, politicians tack on a service charge for assisting with casework, and the government is expanding hungrily in its conquest of bread. 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 93,647th in the world and 4,843rd in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 51.42 on the Human Development Index.
