The Empire of V E R N E R is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Eternal Emperor Verner Von Richthofen with an even hand, and renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, pith helmet sales, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.747 billion Texans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort Verden. The average income tax rate is 44.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Texan economy, worth 195 trillion Solar and Lunar Verdenii Holocrons a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Gambling, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 111,643 Solar and Lunar Verdenii Holocrons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

The government merely sends empty platitudes whenever natural disasters strike foreign nations, grinning punters say that casino roulette is the greatest high that life has to offer, light entertainment isn't dead, and many parents are becoming frustrated with their children's choices in spouses. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. V E R N E R's national animal is the Kelvin Timeline Tribble, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

V E R N E R is ranked 69,788th in the world and 96th in Texas for Most Devout, with 468.75 Prayers Per Hour.
