Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Empire of Storm Gard is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its public floggings, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 12.437 billion Storm Gardians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, pro-business government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Industry, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Core Prime. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Storm Gardian economy, worth a remarkable 2,370 trillion Union Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 190,603 Union Credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,465,678 per year while the poor average 6,637, a ratio of 220 to 1.

Birds and children's kites are regularly brought down by anti-aircraft fire, island residents must resort to canoes and sailboats to get to work, the national sporting identity is represented by a talking burger and a singing smartphone, and warfare increasingly resembles a video game. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Storm Gard's national animal is the Monkey, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Storm Gard is ranked 35th in The Local Cluster and 41,480th in the world for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 8.039 Net Tourists per hour.
