The Grapes of Wrath

"Empress... you requested my presence ?"
"Yes. As the Minister for Agriculture, I require your Advice regarding an Issue involving some Fruit."
"I... see... What issue are you having ?"
"I Require some Information on the Nutrients obtainable from Grapes."
"Oh, I see, well, grapes are quite a healthy food, particularly the skins, which contain many compounds..."
"The Skins contain Nutrients ?"
"Oh yes, the majority of the interesting nutrients are in the grape skin..."
"I See ! This Information is Extremely Interesting."
"I am glad to be of service, Empress."

Some Time Later...

"Empress, I understand you wish to outlaw the peeling of grapes ?"
"Yes. Important Nutrients are contained within Grape Skins. Peeling the Grape and not Consuming the Skin, is Unhealthy. Grapes are also Fiddly to Peel. Therefore, a Peeled Grape represents an Unhealthy and Inefficient way to Consume Grapes, and I consider it Against the Objective of a Healthy, Productive Society."
"I see."
"Yes. Also, I have Heard Rumours that certain Angel Cartel members have Slaves hand them Peeled Grapes, as an Exhibition of Decadent Luxury. I Disapprove of Such Things."
"Indeed, your Majesty."

By Order of Queen Synthia

Grapes are Not to be Peeled, unless the Skin is Also to be Consumed. Grape Skins are Healthy and Nutritious. Discarding the Skin is Unrighteous.

"What is that ?"
"It is the Queen's idea for an emblem for the Civil Service"
"I... see..."
"The η is the symbol for Efficiency, and the lightning bolts represent rapid and decisive action"
"And the wings on the η ?"
"I have no idea. But Her Majesty wants a 2 metre tall mock-up of it made by the end of the week"

Kaztropolis Imperial Cyberpsychology Institute
Cyberpsychology report on Her Majesty Synthia 1

Construction:

Empress Synthia's brain appears primarily to be a descendant of one or more of the drone management AIs that the Gallente released to construct infrastructure in what would become the Drone Regions. Several hardware and software configurations within the Empress's brain point to this. However, there are also many systems of clearly different origin, such as pre-YC100 Imperial Navy devices, and at least 3 hardware designs that would appear to be either unique to the Empress, or of a previously unknown culture. How these systems came to be incorporated into the Empress's design is unknown.

Motivations:

Her construction is relevant, as one of the primary purposes of the drone management AI was the optimisation of the behaviour of subservient drone units, and allocation of appropriate objectives. The result is that the Empress effectively sees us, the people of Kaztropol, as her drones, and wishes to optimise our behaviour, give us suitable objectives, and keep us in peak operating condition. Thus, her apparent compassion and concern for the people is genuine, if occasionally misdirected due to her naiveté about the human condition.

Political Implications:

The design of the Empress poses an issue regarding one of the projects assigned to the Imperial Space Force - Project Drone Enlightenment, which seeks to spread the Faith to other units of the Rogue Drone culture. Our best estimate is that Empress Synthia descends from the civilian models of drone management AIs, and not the military models. While Empress Synthia's behaviour is generally benign, the behaviour of a military model drone brain may not be, so some care must be taken in selection of candidates for the Project, lest a zealot be created that sees everyone, including ourselves, as heretics to be destroyed.
In addition, as long as the Empress Synthia reigns, Kaztropol is spared the rule of the, more eccentric, potential Sani Sabik autocrats that the Covenant may choose to install as ruler, such as a Cult of the Lash Domina. It is therefore in the interests of the people of Kaztropol, that the Empress reigns as long as possible.

Conclusions:

While the Empress is occasionally given to whimsy, her concern for the well-being of the population is as genuine as could be hoped for from a Sani Sabik ruler, and as long as she is appropriately advised and steered in a suitable direction, is greatly preferable to the alternatives.

The End Times Approach

Kaztropolis Civil Service HQ

"Director, here is the report on the Queen's latest social outings"
"Oh, thank you, hmm... oh, what's this ? She went to a party ?"
"Yes, a Masquerade party, that was advertised on the IGS."
"A what ?"
"A Masquerade ball, director ? You know, people wear costumes and masks ?"
"And someone let her go there ? Unattended ?"
"Yes ? Is there something wrong ?"
"I'm just stepping outside for some air. I may be gone for some time."

"What's going on ?"
"The Director said he needed some air, so he stepped out onto the balcony."
"Oh, well, that's unusual for, oh my god ! He jumped !"


"Hello Director. I see you are making Use of the Swimming Pool I had Installed Overnight as part of my Fitness Initiative for Civil Service Employees. I am Slightly Surprised at your chosen Entry Route into the Pool. Also that you are Fully Clothed."
"Ah, indeed your Majesty."
