The Galactic Empire
The New Galactic Empire spans the vast majority of the galaxy’s center, including the Core Worlds, the Inner Rim, and parts of the Mid Rim. The Galactic Empire encompasses twelve entire sectors. The main seat of the Imperial Government is on the Imperial Center, formerly known as Coruscant. It stands as the cornerstone of the entire economy of the Galactic Empire and is also serves as its political center by housing not only Imperial Senate but also the Imperial Palace, the home of the Emperor. The Imperial Military is based on Kuat, the center main production center of weapons, armour and vehicles within the Empire
The Imperial Political System
The Imperial Government is a strict entity, relying on the Imperial Military to secure Law and Order and keep the Peace throughout the thousands of systems of the Galactic Empire. The Empire is ruled by, needless to say, the Emperor whom holds various titles and positions such as Head of State, Supreme Commander and Supreme Chancellor.
However, Empire is too vast to be ruled by just one man. Thus Imperial Moffs are assigned to each planet to act as governors it. Worlds with a scarce population are often grouped and ruled by a single Moff but only a Grand Moff may govern entire sectors and are responsible for its defenses, economics, infrastructure and the enforcement of Imperial policies. Their task also needs them to make sure the lesser Moffs are as efficient and just as possible.
The Imperial Senate is the public's voice in the Imperial Government. Each planet may send several officials to represent the Imperial Population on their homeworld. The Senate is presided over by the Chancellor, chosen and appointed personally by the Emperor. Issues and matters within the Empire are handled by the Chancellor, who will voice the concern of Imperial citizens to the Moff or Grand Moff in question.
The Imperial Government is almost immune to corruption and can respond to matters efficiently and quickly due to the fact in the end one man makes the decision, resolving conflict immediately.
The Imperial Economy
The Galactic Empire boasts the strongest internal economy in the galaxy, thanks to strict regulations imposed by the state. This allows the Empire to be largely self-sufficient, as it does not need to rely on outside trade for its survival.
However, it does not boast the best economy in the galaxy, even though it has the entire Core Worlds under its control. Trade and commerce within the Empire is below average due to the fact the Empire directly controls most external trading companies and forces anything that goes in or out to pay through harsh regulations and customs. Furthermore the majority of the resources are spent on the military, allowing less to go into infrastructure.
This economic situation provides both advantages and disadvantages. While it is almost immune to blockade and is completely self-sufficient. The loss of trade income, compared to factions such as the Federation, is felt heavily. Although, the Empire may enjoy increased economic wealth thanks to its vital position and control of the Core Worlds; only a push is needed for it to become the premier economic superpower in the galaxy.
The Imperial Military
The Imperial Military is widely considered the most disciplined and professional entity in the galaxy. While other soldiers are encouraged to fight for money or power, Imperial soldiers are trained to fight for the ideals of the Empire and its Emperor. This loyalty is fanatical; all soldiers of the Empire would gladly pay the ultimate price to serve and protect the Empire, the people and the Emperor. Imperial loyalty and discipline is admired throughout the galaxy and rightfully feared among the enemies of the Galactic Empire.
Distinction and Honor are the hallmarks of the Imperial Navy. It holds a proud heritage, with only one major defeat in nearly twenty years of service, and many glorious victories to its name. This was the force that brought the Mandalorian Empire to its knees in the East, crushed the Remnants of the Galactic Alliance in the South and that defeated the traitorous Fel Empire to the North. The warships of the Imperial Navy are widely respected for their powerhouse design in providing overwhelming firepower and defense to battle which has allowed the Empire to cut a path through any and all enemies with great ease. Officers serving within the Navy are some of the galaxy’s finest minds, often highly decorated and experienced they will uphold the ideals of the Empire without hesitation.
Imperial Ground Forces consist of many lesser organizations but the three of the most major entities are the Imperial Army, the Stormtrooper Corps and the Clone Legions. The Imperial Army itself provides Imperial Troopers for policing services as well as battlefield support in the form of combat medics and technicians to name a few examples. Whilst not as fanatical or well trained as the more some other soldiers within the Empire, they remain highly dedicated and excel in making sure that Imperial polices are enforced. The Stormtrooper Corps is composed only the most skilled and dedicated Imperial citizens. Well-equipped and fanatically loyal to the Emperor, the Stormtroopers bring fear to the enemies of the Empire.
The Empire currently spans 12 sectors, and controls the great majority of the Core Worlds.
Imperial Center is the political and economical center of the New Galactic Empire, housing the Imperial Palace, Imperial Senate and the largest and most wealthy Financial Center in the Empire, and the galaxy.
Kuat is the seat of the Imperial Military. It holds the Headquarters of Imperial Central Command, and is also responsible for the vast majority of military production.
Corellia is the second most important economical center due to the vast trade it receives. It is the only sector that receives above average trade income apart from the Imperial Center.
Fondor is the second most important military center, the vast shipyards repairing most Imperial fleets and the large supply centers make sure forces on the front stay well equipped and any vehicles quickly repaired.
Mechis and Allanteen are two main Imperial fortresses, both keeping the Federation out of Imperial space. While Mechis serves as a production facility and shipyard also, Allanteen provides the Empire with a vast amount of recruits.
Corsin is the Imperial's main fortress, situated near Mandalorian borders. Its job is to discourage any hostile action from the Mandalorians, but also serves as a minor supply base for Imperial forces stationed in the North.
Bilbringi and Bestine serve as repair yards, able to bring a fleet back to full strength, though would require additional resources and equipment to produce one.
Albregado-Rae houses many minor Imperial research facilities, mainly concentrated on biological and medical research.
Mimban and Tanaab have nothing out of the ordinary.
Imperial Foreign Policies and Diplomacy
The New Jedi Order
Status: At War
Although the Empire has nothing against the Jedi Order in and of itself, viewing as a religious organization and nothing more, the fact that they are allied with the Federation is more than enough for the Empire to call the Jedi an enemy. The Empire disregards the Jedi, even more so with Emperor Tarl in command. The Empire managed to defeat the Sith without a single drop of blood, and believe the Jedi Order will fall just as easily.
The Mandalorian Clans
Although unofficially the Mandalorian Clans are neutral with the Empire, the factions both hold a distaste for the other born out of past confrontations. Neither faction has shown any official hostility to the other outside the Ruusan Conflict and both live in relative peace, though that may change at a moment's notice.
The Galactic Federation of Free People
Status: At War
The Galactic Federation of Free People and the New Galactic Empire have been at odds for nigh on 15 years. While the last ten have been spent in a state of Cold War, recent events have moved the Galactic Empire into a state of Total War, mobilizing their resources in an effort to obliterate the Federation. They are the main enemy of the Imperial Government and People, and all who stand with them are viewed as enemies by the Empire and shall be obliterated alongside them.
The New Sith Order
The Sith Order and the Empire hold a tense alliance. Although most in the Galaxy ignore the continued existence of the Sith, Imperial High Command reluctantly recognize them as allies. Several deals have been made between the two, and one in particular is the reason for their continued alliance.
The Hutt Empire
The Empire has mostly ignored the activities of the Hutt Cartel. The Hutts are the complete opposite of what the Empire is trying to establish, and so no Alliance would ever be possible with them. However, neither would a War, for the Empire believed in direct, brutal confrontation, whereas the Hutts would simply hide from anything the Empire sent. The Empire also has not the resources to spare for such a War. Yet.
The Chiss Ascendancy
The Chiss have led a quiet life, and cut themselves off from the rest of the Galaxy. However, due to their close proximity to Imperial Space, both factions realized negotiations were inevitable to stop war. Thus the Empire has good relations with the Chiss, though no official Alliance has been announced and one probably won't be anytime soon.
