Ever dark

Population2.917 billion


The Empire of Ever dark is a massive, orderly nation, remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, fear of technology, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.917 billion Drows are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Industry, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 40.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ever darkish economy, worth 565 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 Gambling. 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 impressive 193,762 Nights, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

All industry is owned and run by the government, no cul-de-sac or trailer park is complete without a gambling parlor, the insurance industry is outlawed, and at the edge of the final frontier space's biggest missile platform is about to unfold. 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 724th in the world and 24th in The North Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 61.09 Crimes Per Hour.
