The Eternal Vulcan Jedi Empire of Fort Verden is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Eternal Emperor Verner Von Richthofen with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, keen interest in outer space, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 4.624 billion Fort Verdenians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort Verden. The average income tax rate is 68.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Fort Verdenian economy, worth 585 trillion Solar and Lunar Verdenii Holocrons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 126,614 Solar and Lunar Verdenii Holocrons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Children who display even minimal sporting aptitude are immediately assigned a personal trainer, the state believes that nature-oriented summer camps will somehow solve youth crime, Fort Verden isn't what it used to be, and military spending is on the increase. Crime is totally unknown. Fort Verden's national animal is the Kelvin Timeline Tribble, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Jediism.

Fort Verden is ranked 73,200th in the world and 110th in Texas for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 39,630.27 Standard Monetary Units.
