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 zero percent divorce rate, strictly enforced bedtime, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 16.969 billion Storm Gardians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business 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 are ignored. 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 3,869 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 228,029 Union Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 844,383 per year while the poor average 43,362, a ratio of 19.5 to 1.

Genocide is seen as a topic best avoided in history lessons, prices fluctuate manically for no fathomable reason, common misteaks slip threw as the Issues Editing Team adds issues by the hundread (Storm Gard has found 2 easter eggs), and earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss. Crime is totally unknown. Storm Gard's national animal is the Monkey, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Storm Gard is ranked 1,723rd in the world and 7th in The Local Cluster for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 13,565.38 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
