Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Empire of Storm Gard is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 13.02 billion Storm Gardians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The tiny, pro-business, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Education, 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 4.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Storm Gardian economy, worth a remarkable 2,601 trillion Union Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 199,824 Union Credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,782,436 per year while the poor average 2,982, a ratio of 597 to 1.

Senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour, Storm Gard's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, Storm Gard's schoolchildren are manufactured into a segregated bunch of soldiers, religious zealots, and computer technicians, and the controversial show 'Who Wants to be an Immigrant?' has become wildly popular. Crime is relatively low. Storm Gard's national animal is the Monkey, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Storm Gard is ranked 44th in The Local Cluster and 37,864th in the world for Largest Public Transport Department, scoring 24 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
