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.
