Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Storm Gard is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, smutty television, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 15.005 billion Storm Gardians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Industry, and Law & Order also on the agenda, 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 1.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Storm Gardian economy, worth a remarkable 3,243 trillion Union Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 216,161 Union Credits, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,132,732 per year while the poor average 22,106, a ratio of 51.2 to 1.

Even the nation's brussel sprouts are delicious and nutritious, turning eighteen is often referred to as the 'Age of Aquarius', Core Prime is a police state during international summits, and scenic tours are unheard of after most environmental laws were abolished. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, 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 104,013th in the world and 74th in The Local Cluster for Least Corrupt Governments, with 92.59 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
