Ever dark

Population2.697 billion


The Empire of Ever dark is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, compulsory military service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.697 billion Drows 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Industry, and Administration. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 27.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Ever darkish economy, worth 478 trillion Nights 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, Retail, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. 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 177,393 Nights, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 572,392 per year while the poor average 41,578, a ratio of 13.8 to 1.

People can often be seen driving to work in war-surplus tanks, it's usual for grandparents to stay in the family home with their descendants but younger children are often frightened of them, record sales of 'child-whacking sticks' have been reported, and unused plastic recycling bins are being dumped into landfills by the tonne. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Ever dark's national animal is the Human, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Ever dark is ranked 202,295th in the world and 9,693rd in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -9.81 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
