Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Empire of Storm Gard is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, unlimited-speed roads, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 12.245 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 are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Core Prime. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Storm Gardian economy, worth a remarkable 2,288 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 186,856 Union Credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,225,558 per year while the poor average 11,155, a ratio of 109 to 1.

Military geniuses responsible for brilliant campaigns are drummed out because they have close same-sex friends and an interest in interior design, train stations can be 'armful places, fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, and conscientious objectors are hanged as traitors. 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 4th in The Local Cluster and 2,012th in the world for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 8 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
