Default Re: 'Imperial Culture' (non-canonista)

Like I said, it has Imperial counterparts. The SPA's "director's discretion" and some of the customs of Imperial Nobility for instance. And of course the "Imperial Rules of War" which are basically, "Be powerful enough not to be thought presumptuous, don't be powerful enough to be thought a bother, and don't make to much of a mess"(OK, that's not the real "Imperial Rules of War" but they were never written down anywhere and anyway that is a reasonable if cynical way to look at it).
