The Empire of Storm Gard is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, digital currency, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 25.518 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 government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Industry, and Law & Order 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 1.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Storm Gardian economy, worth a remarkable 6,050 trillion Union Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 237,109 Union Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 860,538 per year while the poor average 46,530, a ratio of 18.5 to 1.

Most ambassadors from Storm Gard retire only a few years after being appointed, the country's motorways are surprisingly quiet, the television adaptation of Jennifer Government is the most popular program in the nation, and several inches are being added to first class seating. 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 16,146th in the world and 12th in The Local Cluster for Most Secular, with 75.72 Atheism Rate.
