Ever dark

Population1.133 billion


The Empire of Ever dark is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, ritual sacrifices, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.133 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, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Spirituality, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 50.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Ever darkish economy, worth 168 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 Soda Sales. 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 148,981 Nights, with the richest citizens earning 7.7 times as much as the poorest.

The regional delicacy of chocolate bombes is deadlier than an unexploded bomb, tax-payers are funding ever more extravagant movie projects, science labs across the country languish in cobwebs as the government turns its attentions to spiritual matters, and people who make the leader's blood boil get boiled. 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 136,349th in the world and 6,983rd in The North Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring -58.22 on the Rand Index.
