Dominated by various warlords and monarchies, Udejo Quartus is a planet constantly in upheaval. The only importance that this planet has to the Imperium is its supply of Ghostfire.
The warlords of Udejo Quartus are constantly warring over the supply of Ghostfire for every five years, the Administratum requires a tithe of Ghostfire. The Administratum then exchanges weapons, vehicles, fuel, etc. for the flowers. Therefore, the warlord that brings in the most Ghostfire receives the most equipment and supplies which allows him/her more power.
The Administratum fully supports this bloody system. The Ghostfire is harvested so efficiently because the warlords fight to find every single blossom. Should the Administratum attempt bringing Udejo Quartus under its control, the planet would have to be conquered by the Imperial Guard, that would be a very bloody affair. Furthermore, the Administratum would have nowhere near the vigor of the warlords in harvesting the flower. Therefore, the Administratum decided it was best to leave the planet in blood. They take comfort in knowing that the planet will never rebel from the Imperium as it depends upon the Imperium for its weapons.
