I note that you don't seem to like the vaguely defined culture of the published Third Imperium.

That feeling is one of the reasons for a thread like this! :)

IMC, the Third Imperium actually does have a 'cultural core.' Sylea/Capital provides that core. Noble ranks, the Imperial code of honor, duelling with swords, distaste for anthropomorphic robots, etc are all related to the culture of Capital. I added a strong 'glue' element that's missing in the published TU, a state religion.
