The Imperial Hierarchy of Grand Widerstand is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by Primearch Drake Hapsburg with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 7.21 billion Grandss are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alexandria. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 56%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Information Technology and Tourism.
City rooftops are pockmarked with the shattered remains of experimental delivery drones, the commercialisation of highly deadly weapons has instilled Grand Widerstand with a very polite populace, reports of arson have doubled since the introduction of a privatised fire protection service, and violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive 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, its national religion is Imperial-Catholocism, and its currency is the Imperial Credit.
