Gövt-specific hail strings

According to the EVO Bible, each government has ten slots in a 'STR#' resource (or ten 'STR ' resources respectively, if you use the alternative method) in which its reactions to hails are stored. I noticed that in the game not all of these slots are treated equally, only some of them appear in a given situation. Does anyone know exactly which slots have which function in the game? The Bible doesn't talk about that.

Also, I assume I'm right in assuming that an asterisk in such a slot causes the default strings to be used, right? 😉
