Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Storm Gard is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 14.843 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, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with 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 1.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Storm Gardian economy, worth a remarkable 3,138 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 211,421 Union Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 601,024 per year while the poor average 59,371, a ratio of 10.1 to 1.

Rap artists are regularly jailed for promoting extremist groups, the new 'Things We Stole From Other Countries' exhibition at the National Museum of Antiquities is a hit, jaywalking is punishable by public flogging, and construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major 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 188,173rd in the world and 167th in The Local Cluster for Most Primitive, scoring -314.64 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
