Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Empire of Storm Gard is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, sprawling nuclear power plants, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 13.383 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 is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Industry, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Core Prime. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Storm Gardian economy, worth a remarkable 2,713 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, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 202,769 Union Credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,884,068 per year while the poor average 2,017, a ratio of 933 to 1.

Corporations claim the third ounce of any metal traded in a wicker-cone on the Sunday of a full moon as a charitable expense, prices fluctuate manically for no fathomable reason, the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Core Prime, and soldiers are equipped with multi-million Union Credit battlesuits. 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 106th in The Local Cluster and 114,340th in the world for Happiest Citizens, scoring 10 on the Relative Cheerfulness Rating.
