“Sex & Violence” Methuselah Ţepeș

Location: the South Pacific
The Vampire Syndicate of Black Ivars is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Methuselah Ţepeș with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, disturbing lack of elderly people, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 33.866 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 receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crypt. The average income tax rate is 73.8%.
The frighteningly efficient undead economy, worth a remarkable 9,221 trillion blood barrels 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, Book Publishing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. 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 272,307 blood barrels, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.
The government loves seeing the little people fight, suspicious locals close their doors leaving tourists to suffer the elements by themselves, gay men commonly complain about their time of the month, and renewable energy projects have ground to a halt. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Black Ivars's national animal is the bat, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is necromancy.
