Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Storm Gard is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 15.541 billion Storm Gardians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The minute government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Core Prime. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Storm Gardian economy, worth a remarkable 3,452 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, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 222,129 Union Credits, with the richest citizens earning 5.9 times as much as the poorest.

The government strictly regulates whale harvest quotas, the country is preparing for war, the police have been swamped with requests to stay up past bedtime, and bands of paramedics walk the streets looking for suspicious medical activity. 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 2,489th in the world and 5th in The Local Cluster for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 16,462.96 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
