Ever dark

Population4.376 billion


The Empire of Ever dark is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, public floggings, and compulsory vegetarianism. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.376 billion 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 juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 70.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ever darkish economy, worth 981 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, Retail, Uranium Mining, and Soda Sales. 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 224,322 Nights, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Foreign livestock are offered asylum, Ever dark recently hosted the least successful trade negotiations since The Phantom Menace, police officers spend more time on calisthenics than actually catching criminals, and the government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene. 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 245,534th in the world and 9,483rd in The North Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -42.35 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
