The Vampire Syndicate of Black Ivars is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Methuselah Ţepeș with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, rampant corporate plagiarism, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 35.032 billion Nosferatus 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 is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry, Healthcare, and Education also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crypt. The average income tax rate is 78.8%.

The frighteningly efficient undead economy, worth a remarkable 9,534 trillion blood barrels a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 272,156 blood barrels, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

The "Dreadnowt" is the pride and joy of the Undead Navy, engine room hooch is the drink of choice among the nation's navy, the military is on a massive recruiting drive in advance of an invasion of Brasilistan, and economists have been named Invertebrates of the Year. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Black Ivars's national animal is the bat, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is necromancy.

Black Ivars is ranked 30,618th in the world and 1,243rd in the South Pacific for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 57,697.28 Standard Monetary Units.
