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 barren, inhospitable landscape, pith helmet sales, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 14.342 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, although Education, Industry, and Law & Order are also considered important, 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 2.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Storm Gardian economy, worth a remarkable 3,070 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 214,115 Union Credits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,037,994 per year while the poor average 25,566, a ratio of 40.6 to 1.

Tantrum-throwing toddlers are regularly imprisoned on assault charges, the government has returned all business to private ownership, mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, and tax rises are attributed to divine will. Crime is well under control. Storm Gard's national animal is the Monkey, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Storm Gard is ranked 130th in The Local Cluster and 108,677th in the world for Lowest Crime Rates, scoring 15.538 on the Relative Freedom From Crime Index.
