The Imperial Hierarchy of Grand Widerstand is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Primearch Vizir with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, anti-smoking policies, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 10.433 billion Grandss are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.
The relatively small, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alexandria. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 12.9%.
The frighteningly efficient Grand Widerstandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,213 trillion Imperial Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 116,342 Imperial Credits, with the richest citizens earning 8.4 times as much as the poorest.
DDT is used widely to repel disease-carrying insects, discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is illegal, the government struggles to keep up with the endless list of petrol disasters, and bleach is the nation's most common pesticide. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Grand Widerstand's national animal is the Dire Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Imperial-Catholocism.
