Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Empire of Storm Gard is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 12.587 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 4.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Storm Gardian economy, worth a remarkable 2,464 trillion Union Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 195,802 Union Credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,679,383 per year while the poor average 3,896, a ratio of 431 to 1.

The streets are increasingly clogged with poverty-stricken beggars, the government encourages conflict abroad to increase arms sales, violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner, and Storm Gard's leader goes out to lunch surrounded by large men in dark glasses. 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 77th in The Local Cluster and 136,946th in the world for Most Primitive, scoring -269 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
