Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Storm Gard is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, strictly enforced bedtime, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 15.74 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 government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Industry 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 1.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Storm Gardian economy, worth a remarkable 3,507 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 222,823 Union Credits, with the richest citizens earning 6.4 times as much as the poorest.

Failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside, weird or unusual crimes merit cruel and unusual punishments, the nation leads The Local Cluster in per capita stalking, and every new toxic waste dump comes with a seal of approval from the government's science advisor. Crime is well under control. Storm Gard's national animal is the Monkey, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Storm Gard is ranked 2,600th in the world and 8th in The Local Cluster for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 16,411.81 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
