The Eternal Vulcan Jedi Empire of Verner Von Richthofen is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Eternal Emperor Verner Von Richthofen with an iron fist, and renowned for its ban on automobiles, compulsory military service, and pith helmet sales. The cynical population of 5.666 billion Texans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort Verden. The average income tax rate is 53.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Texan economy, worth 636 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, broadly diversified black market in Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Basket Weaving. 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 112,423 Solar and Lunar Verdenii Holocrons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Forest fires have dropped dramatically as there are hardly any forests left, the government baselessly accuses foreign dignitaries of being assassins, euthanasia is legal, and soldiers stream their classified military operations live for millions of fans. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Verner Von Richthofen's national animal is the Kelvin Timeline Tribble, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Verner Von Richthofen is ranked 17,169th in the world and 32nd in Texas for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 23,157.19 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
