The Eternal Vulcan Jedi Empire of Fort Verden is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Eternal Emperor Verner Von Richthofen with an iron fist, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, feral children, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 6.239 billion Fort Verdenians are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

The large, corrupt 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 81.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Fort Verdenian economy, worth a remarkable 1,033 trillion Solar and Lunar Verdenii Holocrons a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 165,646 Solar and Lunar Verdenii Holocrons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The path to inner peace is paved with state-mandated punishment, Eternal Emperor Verner Von Richthofen's iHouse is so intelligent that it manages its own social media accounts, boats straying just metres away from the shore will raise the ire of the Coast Guard, and protecting the land is holey work. 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 222,984th in the world and 188th in Texas for Least Corrupt Governments, with 37.08 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
