Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Empire of Storm Gard is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 12.78 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, with Education, Industry, and Law & Order also on the agenda, 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 3.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Storm Gardian economy, worth a remarkable 2,543 trillion Union Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 199,013 Union Credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,775,199 per year while the poor average 2,970, a ratio of 597 to 1.

The military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, it is a common belief that a sport isn't sport if there are no decapitations, and birth rates have hit an all-time low. Crime, especially youth-related, is a 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 9th in The Local Cluster and 5,011th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 6 on the Hayek Index.
