The Empire of Nachtreich is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 429 million Vampires 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 44.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Vampiric economy, worth 15.6 trillion Lunes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Arms Manufacturing, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 36,320 Lunes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Education for the poor is learning to ask "do you want fries with that?", safe drinking water is considered a luxury, the citizenship exam requires years of study to actually pass, and the only women behind bars are barmaids. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nachtreich's national animal is the Bat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Nachtreich is ranked 225,213th in the world and 4th in Shadow Proclamation for Best Weather, with 66 Meters Of Sunlight.
