Thoengling Empire: Large, centralized state in
the Vargr Extents. The thoengling Empire
is one of the most stable of the Vargr states
and has existed in its current form since 792. The Emperor, who has great
governmental authority, is chosen for life by vote of an elected assembly;
by law, no member of his family may succeed him. Sons and daughters of
the higher nobility are brought up at the Imperial court, where every effort
is made to inculcate personal loyalty to the Emperor.
The Thoengling Empire has become a major trading partner
of the Imperium and generally supports
Imperial interests in the Vargr Extents. -ld
