The Minister of War of Vamperiall is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Vampereo with an iron fist, and remarkable for its smutty television, free-roaming dinosaurs, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 6.816 billion Vamperians 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 juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vamperiall. The average income tax rate is 75.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vamperian economy, worth a remarkable 1,313 trillion vamperian 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 large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. 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 192,657 vamperian dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Counselors have to sign pledges supporting gay rights before they can speak to any patients, soylent products are an expensive commodity due to a lack of volunteers, the nation has an international reputation for compassion, and the government keeps introducing new foreign species to combat the previous ones it has introduced. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vamperiall's national animal is the kitten, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Vamperianism.

Vamperiall is ranked 2,395th in the world and 99th in Balder for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 8,865.48 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
