OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Empire of Storm Gard is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 10.95 billion Storm Gardians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

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 secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Core Prime. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 73%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining industries.

The 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event, the new 'Things We Stole From Other Countries' exhibition at the National Museum of Antiquities is a hit, birth rates have hit an all-time low, and fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is a problem. 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 25th in Nocturnalya and 105,888th in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.007 Stalins.
