The Authority of the Throne

April 6, 2024

With the Imperator we Rest our Souls.

The Authority of the Throne, known more commonly as the First Galactic Imperium or the Galactic Imperium, is an interstellar superpolity located in the Stellaran Omegacluster approximately 105.4k lightyears from the Kalanhka Supernebula. It is one of the most powerful cosmic polities in knownspace; capable of constructing multitudinous quantities of megastructures in remarkably short amounts of time. 

The government has been described by Imperial officials as “Just and Absolute Galactic Sprawl”, and in truth it could be described as an ultraimperialistic nation with indirect totalitarian tendencies. It consists of around 20 constituent states classified into two categories: Qul and Rahan. The former is incapable of partaking in independent political decision, and must support the Throne’s political decisions; while the Rahan are entirely independent from the Throne and may do as they please diplomatically and politically.

All substates, known as Satrapies, are loyal to the Nagyari Throne, also known simply as the Throne. Which is the despotic ruling nation of the Galactic Imperium and the primary source of its strength; for no highly advanced technology is given to the constituent satrapies. 

System of Governance.


The Nagyari Throne, initially known as the Nagyari Host, is the primary governing polity of the Galactic Imperium. In of itself an endoparasitoid collective consciousness, it depends upon donations of sapient citizens to increase its own population. Satrapies selected for these donations (known reverentially as the Blood Tithe) are known as the Qul. 

The Overmind which governs the uniocratic state of the Nagyari refers to itself as the Great Imperator, and controls the drones of the Nagyari Hive with an absolute hand. Autonomy, in some circumstances, may be granted. No creature not born of the Nagyari can be a part of the Throne, with the exception of those pardoned by the Imperator. All Nagyari organisms are given special privileges and amenities in Imperial Satrapies. 

The Imperator is a physical entity, located on the Imperial Capital of the Throne, Mishri, which is arguably the most technological planet in the entire Stellaran Omegacluster. Mishri is located in the trinary Shar system, and is considered Sacrosanct, so no Satrapic vessel can enter. 

The Throne is the most advanced polity in the Galactic Imperium, governing the largest territory and having the strongest martial capacity. Amongst its grandest feats are the twin Dyson Spheres: Torrom & Cardorth (Located opposite of each other in the Universe); the Celestial Warship, and the planetshattering Colossus Deathhive Flagship.

If war was to come to the Nagyari Throne, it is likely that it could singlehandedly obliterate most or all of its Satrapies in total war. Voting is based upon “Voting Weight” (known as the Ars Gibarri), a measured score given to each Imperial Polity based on their martial power and influence.

The Throne is directly responsible for protecting the Galactic Imperium from all threats, with some assistance from each Satrapy’s personal armed forces. There is also an elite force known as the Imperial Machina Bellum Praetorica; a combination of the Throne’s most effective military forces and the most effective military forces of the Rahan. The Throne’s personal armed forces are known as the Xenospore Legions, and its navy is known as the Nagyari-Skoc and outnumber and outrival both the Machina Bellum and all personal armed forces of every Satrapy combined.

The Imperator, and by proxy the Throne, can veto and ratify any policy currently in the voting stage of ratification. He can also change or manipulate the voters (i.e, changing Satrapy votes from abstaining to voting For or Against). Satrapies which vote to abolish the Imperium usually collapse within days due to internal strife and rebellion, coincidentally pledging secret fealty to the Imperator; this occurs regardless of previous political stability. 

The Throne relays commands or decrees to its subordinates in an indecipherable language referred to by Satrapies as “Sorok Mjestiar”, which can only be translated by cyborg and sessile Imperial Envoys. In voting and standard communication, however, a variety of languages are used depending on the location in knownspace.

The Throne’s galactic territory, known as Thronespace or Reverend Territory, consumes the majority of Stellaran knownspace, and is many leagues larger than all other Satrapies in the Galactic Imperium. The Throne is more technologically advanced than its Satrapies, too, by many leagues. It has constructed a variety of megastructures, some of which are of immense capacity.

The Sanguinus Sardrake, known in standard conversation as the Blood Tithe, is the primary system which delineates Qul from Rahan. The Qul, aside from being diplomatically and politically restricted to the ideals of the Throne, must obey the Blood Tithe. Which is the yearly donation of 500 million sapient lifeforms from each Qul to be used in the endoparasitoid lifefunctions of the Nagyari organisms. 

The amount demanded by the Blood Tithe may change based on the demands of the Throne; War, Famine, or large construction projects may convince the Throne to increase or decrease the amount of sapients taken from each Qul. While other events may convince the Throne to take more sapients, or even other resources such as grain or precious metals. 

Rahan, the Free-Nations of the Galactic Imperium, while still considered Satrapies, are exempt from the Tithe. Because they do not owe the Throne excess resources, ships, Men, or even planetary systems (in special events), Rahan are almost always significantly larger than Qul. 


The Qul are the lesser Satrapies of the Galactic Imperium, who were either direct vassals of the Throne before the Imperium’s founding; or nations who challenged the Throne to war and lost, resulting in their subsequent consumption. Qul can be sanctioned and denounced by any member of the Imperium, but cannot be attacked by any of the Throne. 

Qul are subject to the Sanguinus Sardrake, and donate a hefty sum of their resources to the Throne to continue existing. It is not possible for a Qul to become Rahan. Most Qul share borders with the Throne or are directly enveloped by it, and for this reason are sometimes seen as Holy Lands. 

Qul are entirely subservient to the Throne, and must side with the Imperator on all political or diplomatic matters. They are not allowed to grow their borders, usually, and their citizens are marked by a maroon chip embedded into their wrists. 

Despite this, Qul of exceptional power in extraordinary circumstances may become members of the Galactic Internationale Councila. For example, the Ketling Starpack was initially one of the most powerful Rahan known, before being subjugated in a brief war and becoming Qul. Because of their diplomatic power and newfound loyalty to the Throne, they maintained their position on the Internationale Councila.

The largest Qul is the Yalon Assembly, which was vassalized early in its history; far before the Galactic Imperium even existed. It is an atrophied rumpstate, which has suffered greatly from its constant yearly donations.

When a Qul becomes unruly, loses a majority of its power or population, or fails to deliver on its Tithe, a Great Devourment may occur. In which the Nagyari violently attack and annex the Satrapy, resulting in massive migrations of sapients to be devoured or infested with embryonic Nagyari instances. This has happened only 3 times in the Galactic Imperium’s history, however still it incentivizes Qul to compete with each other for resources and diplomatic power. 


The Rahan are also known as the Free-States of the Imperium. For they are given exemption from the Sanguinus Sardrake and may choose willingly on which policies to vote for, whether they wish to join Imperial War, etcetera. All Rahan, however, must contribute their finest Men and ships to the Machina Bellum. 

Rahan generally are powerful nations who have joined the Galactic Imperium willingly (as in the case of the Sandaran, Cantharian Sovereign Colonies, etc,); are incapable of being Qul by virtue of their morphology (Prime examples being the Tronzaru Sentience and the XT-489 Matrix, both polities are machine-empires and cannot be used in the Nagyari lifecycle); or were rebellion-states of Qul who became Rahan through proving themselves worthy. 

This process, known as Gladitorix’s Way, is the method in which Qul can prove themselves and become Rahan. A rebellion may take control over a set of Qul-planets and become sovereign in of itself. The strength required to separate from its original Qul authority proves it Rahan. 

Rahan make up the largest and most powerful of the Satrapies, but are outnumbered by the Qul. Satrapies consisting entirely of Machines are considered Rahan on technicality, but are placed into their own satrapic category: Neto de Adão. 

Neto de Adão have all the rights of the Rahan. However, the Throne demands 100 legions of fine martial automatons to join the Imperial Legion each year. It may also demand a percentage of resources harvested (minerals, alloys, etc,) depending on the size and power of the Satrapy.

The Imperial Diet

The Imperial Diet is the primary body in which laws, treaties, and resolutions are ratified. It consists of representatives of every Satrapy, and representatives from the Throne. All Satrapies may propose resolutions and laws, however, only Rahan may vote freely about their ratification; for the Qul must always side with the Throne. 

The Imperial Diet is based upon a system known as the Ars Gibarri, or Voting Weight, which represents how influential each polity is within the Galactic Imperium. Voting Weight is numerical, and the sum of every polity’s Voting Weight is added into the overall Voting Weight of the resolution. If the combined Voting Weight of all supporters of the law is higher than the combined Voting Weight of all opponents of the law, it will be ratified. 

The period of voting may be at any point manipulated by the Imperator and therefore the Throne. The Throne can alter the voting results as it sees fit, force Satrapies to abstain from the voting session, end the voting session early, and mandates that all Qul vote in its favor. The Voting Weight of the Throne, 273.3k, generally allows it to single handedly change the results of the Imperial Diet’s voting session. Which is likely why it abstains from the majority of votes, unless said vote is one of its propositions. 

The two most powerful Satrapies may send Envoys to join the Imperial Illuminati, an oligarchic clique directly led in collaboration with the Imperator himself. The members of the Imperial Illuminati have a similar capacity to manipulate the voting results of the Imperial Diet, but to a lesser extent than the Throne. 



The majority of the Galactic Imperium’s advancements come from the Throne. For it has significantly more resources. The Throne is also quite secretive, preferring to keep its technologies isolated from other Satrapies; with the exceptions of the older, more loyal subcountries. As faster than light navigation was previously invented polychromatically, the Throne took upon itself to extirpate all lesser methods of travel to supplant them with its own.

The Throne has created a variety of Megastructures to serve a variety of purposes. These include Dyson Spheres, Penrose Spheres, Ringworlds, Alderson Disks, Neutronium Extractors, Hyperstructural Shipyards, etc,. Most especially unique amongst these projects are the Celestial Warships, large moons or small planetoids which have been scrimshawed into offensive motile vessels. 

Imperial Architecture varies heavily from Satrapy-to-Satrapy, but the Throne’s architecture is generally uniform. It is very brutalist or jagged externally, however internally it is fleshy and sarcous like the innards of a living mycetal organism. The external shell of structures and ships is formed of neutronium-alloy, which is a nigh indestructible material that is extracted by megastructual machinery from the centres of neutron stars; the innards of Thronestructures are grown organically and require a cocktail of nutrients and energy to continue functioning.

When ranked upon the primitive and archaic Kardashev Scale, the Throne, independent of its Satrapies, would be rated III. While its Satrapies would be rated II; the combined Galactic Imperium’s scaling would likely surpass this entirely. 


Living standards in the Galactic Imperium depend almost entirely on the Satrapy; the most affluent of the Rahan are going to be generally very joyous livingplaces. This is, also, dependent on the planet one is born upon, for it is very difficult to migrate from one colony to another. Rahan are exempt from the Sanguinus Sardrake, and so do not have to worry about being chosen for death. 

The average Satrapy is capitalistic, and so working is required to make a living. However, the introduction of extremely advanced artificial intelligence and other dreamlike technologies makes working significantly less dangerous for the average Man. Oreprocessing, Engineering, and scientific jobs are likely the most affluent. 

Living in a Qulstate is significantly more turbulent, for 500 million people are taken from throughout their territories to be devoured by the Throne. Discrimination against those native to the Qul is common, and they are generally advanced versions of third-world countries. 

All Satrapies have extremely advanced technologies, especially in engineering, agriculture, and scientific research. Living standards are generally higher than the average starborne lifeform living outside the Imperium. However, the risk of being chosen for the Blood Tithe in Qulstates makes them significantly more hostile to reside in.

For nondrone populations living on Thronespace, life is generally utopian. Amenities are very resplendent and most non-Nagyari need not worry about jobs with long hours or tedious activities. As most planets in Thronespace are terraformed to suit the needs of the Nagyari, their atmospheres are generally toxic without special breathing suits or other such equipment. For the Nagyari, quality of life is high, but emphasis on individual life is hampered. It is best compared to a hypertechnological variant of Acromyrmex society.

Lord of all things.
