One of the "ubertales" in the GAC is the disintegration of the Lunar Empire when the Emperor fails to return. Since he is the pinnacle of the military and organized state religion, there are many political entities (the satraps, armies,) and spiritual entities (cults, "religions") that struggle for "top down" leadership and control, while many ethnic groups normally divided by the imperial policy of "divide and conquer" strive for unity, or dominance, or independence...
