Vamperiall VIII

Population2.443 billion


The Empire of Vamperiall VIII is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its state-planned economy, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 2.443 billion Vamperiall VIIIians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 46.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Vamperiall VIIIian economy, worth 23.5 trillion dollars 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 slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming and Arms Manufacturing. 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 9,626 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vamperiall VIII's national animal is the kitten, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Vamperiall VIII is ranked 145,630th in the world and 33rd in Vamperion for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 43.55 on the Hayek Index.
