"The Game is what makes them strong. It's what gives them purpose. No one just sits around in the Kraterocracy. Everyone has one shared goal, and everyone knows it. Everything outside of it is a component to win The Game, because winning The Game means that you reach the top pillar of society - You become the Grand Emperor."
The Zrelgerian Kraterocracy is a Faction in the Verpletter Dwarf Galaxy. It originates from the planet Zagrah, and is dominated primarily by a species known as the Zrelgerians.
The most distinctive feature surrounding the Zrelgerian Kraterocracy is 'The Game'. From birth, everyone who is a free and autonomous citizen is subject to the rule of the Grand Emperor, and is installed with one singular goal in life to aspire to - To Usurp the Grand Emperor and claim their spot at the height of the Zrelgerian Kraterocracy. It is a game all within the Zrelgerian Kraterocracy take part in, becoming master genderals, charismatic and influential politicians, the masters of criminal underworlds, setting up an independent state, or capital hoarding - Any and all methods are considered valid, so long as it maintain and enhances ones ability to plot to usurp the Grand Emperor. Strength and power are central to the ideology of the Zrelgerian Kraterocracy, and they care little for how that power is acheived.
This Game is designed to ensure that only the strongest or the smartest can lead their empire, beleiving that the most deserving individual should lead, regardless of their station. It is through this that they ensure that the empire will be led to glory. In the eyes of the Zrelgerian Kraterocracy, those who are weak serve no purpose other than to be of use to the strong. Following this philosophy, the Zrelgerian Kraterocracy is well known for it's slave trade, in which many officials will sell or use prisoners as slave labour.
