Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Empire of Storm Gard is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its public floggings, enslaved workforce, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 13.177 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, with Industry, Education, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Core Prime. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Storm Gardian economy, worth a remarkable 2,654 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 201,454 Union Credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,796,972 per year while the poor average 3,006, a ratio of 597 to 1.

The nation's diplomatic missives are now delivered via sniper rifle, town welcome signs list corporate sponsors, Monkeys are becoming popular in pet stores nationwide, and homeless people can be found sleeping on streets in front of unoccupied second homes. 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 17th in The Local Cluster and 8,963rd in the world for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 91 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
