The Empire of Storm Gard is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 2.817 billion, 448 million of whom are zombies, 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Defence, although Education and Commerce are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Core Prime. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 75%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining industries.

Convicted felons are forced into slavery for their crimes, the richest citizens live in sheltered private citadels, citizens can be frequently spotted going about their business stark naked, and citizens must pay to enjoy Storm Gard's pristine beaches. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is moderate. Storm Gard's national animal is the Monkey, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the Union Credit.

Storm Gard is ranked 6th in The Local Cluster and 2,509th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 18 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.

Storm Gard is currently researching a cure.
