The Imperial Kingdom of Vakterreich is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Gabriel I with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, sprawling nuclear power plants, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 2.018 billion Imperial Subjects are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hochburg. The average income tax rate is 40.7%.

The powerhouse Imperial economy, worth 164 trillion Imperial Banknotes a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 81,385 Imperial Banknotes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Missionaries learn the hard way that their piercing spiritual insights are no match for arrows, gossip magazines have pictures of King Gabriel I sunbathing on the beach with political rivals, the nation's leader appoints ministers directly, and mining safety laws are often more expensive than what's being mined. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vakterreich's national animal is the Black Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Vakterreich is ranked 61,826th in the world and 70th in The Order of the Grey Wardens for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 3,032.35 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
