Ethno-Centric Imperio-Nationalism: The foundation of the Empire is built upon, all our successes as a people, our faith in the gods, all of it goes back to the unification of the tribes in Classical Antiquity & the sense of purpose it provided.
Guided by the Light of Empire: Imperialism is healthy, subjugation of native-infested lands is a cornerstone of Greuthungi Civilization; bringing the "Light of Empire" to dark corners of the world, if not other worlds is a divinely granted duty even an obligation if the notion is to be stretched further. Those damndable primitives that meet the marker of acceptable merit will have literacy rates, better economics, electrical lighting, education and medical services whether they want it or not (from the workhouses of course.........).
Industriousness: To be productive and self sufficient is to be holding onto the notions of self-worth via strength of limb & strength of will; the industrial organizations of the GÞR (Abbrev. of nation name) reflect this.
Martial Might: The standing army & it's constituent Legions is an all volunteer force, echoing the upheld notions of militaristic theo-philosophy the empire has carried since time immemorial.
Discipline: Discipline as a concept is near & dear to the civilian and military population; having witnessed the marginalization and eventual vanishing of kindred peoples and tribes, it was deemed necessary to fight tooth and nail for the instilling of a national principle in relation to discipline as a means to both betterment of the self, over-all improvements of efficiency and a way to forcefully kick away the alternatives that the darker side of history seems to have provided for how a people may vanish.
Those who grip the Yoke: Having witnessed the enslaving of the Gauls and various western germanic tribes, a notion of what it means to be "One's own master, yet master of others" truly came to be; thus it is ill advised to be a prisoner of war under the Greuthungi Yoke, for to do so is to be subjected to Classical Antiquities concept of "Color-Blind Slavery" if it seen through a late Victorian Lense with the accompanying technologies to enforce it.
