Ever dark

Population4.364 billion


The Empire of Ever dark is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, fear of technology, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.364 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 juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 70.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ever darkish economy, worth 977 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 amazing 224,025 Nights, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Oracles predict landslide victories for Leader for the next 50 years, tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, coastal cities are being moved a dozen miles inland to reduce flooding risk, and citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims. 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 420th in the world and 16th in The North Pacific for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 82.11 Whatever.
