Actually, it depends on the planet in the Imperium. Large swathes of the Imperium have feudal nobility, others have slave classes (lol mutants) who cannot advance at all. Many planets will have you born into a job, regardless of your genetics. On an Agri-World you will be a farmer. That is all. On Cadia, you will be a Guardsman. That is all. Those that aren't are unusual.

Okay, the Ethereals are in charge, but there is more mobility here than in the Imperium.
