The planet Visigoth has always been compliant with the rules and regulations of the Adeptus Adminustratum, following closely the holy edicts of the Adeptus Terra. The planet has an economy that strongly favours industry and the production of technologies. The main produces of the factories are weapons for the Imperial Guard, numerous tracked and wheeled vehicles, and a variety of lesser technologies that are fundamental to the continued everyday life of the Imperium.
The planet itself is divided into seven major industry centers, these centers are the equivalent of the hives of Armaggedon or Necromunda. The hives reach upwards and into the skies, touching the very heavens with their pointed tips. Each spire is home to hundreds of thousands of individuals, each working tirelessly to maintain production levels and to serve the Emperor with all of their collective worths. The main center, where the core offices of the Administratum reside aswell as those of the Planetary Governor, is called Tiberius. This was the first major manufacturing center established on Visigoth, named after the Captain of th Iron Hands Space Marine Chapter who had led the first attack on the Orks that cleared the landing area for the ship to set down on (sub. ref. Tiberius)
The next two major hives are Majer and Lenux, both strongly industrial centers located within the the largest mountain range within the main continent of Visigoth (sub. ref. Explorator Report). These two hive-centers provide the planet with the majority of its raw materials and only a small proportion of its finished goods. The two hives lend themselves almost entirely to the mining of the valuable mineral resources located deep within the crust of the planet. Deep within the hives tunnels stretch for hundreds of miles into the bedrock as men and machinery tirelessly dig up earth and ore for refining. All raw materials not slated for use within the hive itself are sent to the remaining four hives for production into finished goods via land train.
The last four hives are known collectively as the Four Sisters. Each of these Sisters; Adrianus, Oceaus, Lannark, and Stormont produce ninety per cent of the planet's finished goods. They are called the Four Sisters for that reason and their close proximity to each other along the coast of the main continent. Naturally, the presence of these four major manufacturing centers along the edge of the world's largest ocean has transformed it into a toxic body of pollution. Centuries of unregulated pollution to maintain quotas and production levels have token their toll on the planets atmosphere, flora, and native fauna. However, for the sake of humanity some sacrifices must be made to guarantee the continued existence of our species.
Tithing has never been great for the planet as the majority of its finished goods end up among the fleets and armies of the Imperium. However, in the past twenty-five years their has been a 0.13 per cent annual decline in production totals and in the subsequent tithes being given over to the Administratum officials for transport to Terra. This decline has been explained as the end result of the exploitation of the planet's mineral wealth, making it much more difficult to locate resources to refine and the use of more resources than expected gains from the discovered pockets.
From the position of the Adeptus Administratum this explanation is currently adequate.
