The Imperial Hierarchy of Grand Widerstand is a colossal, safe 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 8.39 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 11.9%.
The frighteningly efficient Grand Widerstandian economy, worth 942 trillion Imperial Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 112,371 Imperial Credits, with the richest citizens earning 7.9 times as much as the poorest.
The nation is experiencing a severe shortage of sporting events, young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables, Alexandria is a police state during international summits, and it's always rabbit season. 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.
