Goverment and Organization
Solely governed by the Matriarch and assisted by the ruling council of 12 other Crests, colloquially 13 Crests, the Matriarchate's decision-making policies are highly efficient to serve the global Feline interests. Being a unique combination of Dictatorship and Technocracy, most of the Empire's top-level executives are staffed by female officials selected on their expertise at their area of responsibility, akin to a corporation. 
Science and technology

At the outbreak of the Great Race War, such as in the Battle of Midgård, the Matriarchate made use of various Militia troops with varying levels of equipment and advanced weapons, such as MAR-A2 Pulse Rifle and quadrupedal MUUPA (MUltiple-Utility-Patrol/Assault)- Combat Drones to fight off the Crystal Guard. 
While expansionist and aggressive, the Matriarchate maintains a foreign relationships with a number of clients and neighbouring realms.
