The planet (then known as Kuan Yin) was in a desperate situation at the time of his arrival. Because its native microorganisms made agriculture almost impossible, the colonists were on the verge of starvation. Anderman, a highly intelligent and competent leader, brought in modern microbiologists and genetic engineers, who developed new, microbe-resistant food crops. The colonists were only too happy to accept Gustav's leadership, and honored him by renaming the planet Potsdam and adopting German as their national language. Anderman proclaimed himself Emperor Gustav I soon afterwards. (HH6)
Along with Cutler Gensonne, he later overthrew Ronald Devane and took control of the Nimbalkar System. Some time later, the Emperor and Gensonne had a falling out and Gensonne left to found the Volsung Mercenaries. (MA2)
Despite being a gifted leader, Gustav was a decidedly eccentric individual. He genuinely believed himself to be the reincarnation of Frederick the Great. To that end, he dressed up in period costume from Fredrick's time, and designed the dress uniforms of the military to look similar. As of the time of Gustav XI, his uniform designs were still in use.
