2)I'm still working with my report. Could you please say if the following is normal English:

b)their position was ensured by hereditary property and, which is no less important, by political loyalty. (which word is correct in the phrase, which or what is no less important; and is the word order OK?)
c)they had to observe the rules,i.e. to? obey orders and to? ... (Do I need to use particles in this structure or is it possible to omit them?)

f)is it possible to say "taxable groups of the population", i.e. people who pay taxes.

j)they built society on the foundation of the blood they shed together in battles against the enemy (do I need an article before the word "blood")
