The planet is ruled by a feudal system of noble patronage which extends even beyond its own star system into neighboring worlds. It is the recruiting ground for the Gudrunite Rifles regiments of the Imperial Guard. A founding of a new regiment is always a cause for a planet-wide celebration.[Needs Citation]

Once the capital of the Helican Sector, in 241.M41 one of the preeminent noble houses on Gudrun - House Glaw - was found to be pervaded by a Chaos cult. Once this came to be known the noble house was destroyed. The damage caused to the reputation and prestige of Gudrun led to the relocation of Sector Headquarters to Thracian Primaris.[Needs Citation]
