The Imperial Hierarchy of Grand Widerstand is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Primearch Vizir with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 12.036 billion Grands are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt, 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 9.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Grand Widerstandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,493 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 124,060 Imperial Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 355,698 per year while the poor average 34,426, a ratio of 10.3 to 1.

Matryoshka dolls resembling nested Death Stars are commonly sold, officer recruitment and police brutality have reached an all-time high, nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, and it is often said that only Primearch Vizir could bring down Dàguó. 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.

Grand Widerstand is ranked 49,824th in the world and 1,589th in Osiris for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 2,744.56 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
