The Imperial War Machine is considered the most powerful entity in the Galaxy, and is both feared and respected by the Galactic community. To oppose it...
The Empire has had a very rough ten years. The Galaxy wide recession has made it difficult for us all to get back on our feet. But fear not. Fear not for the Empire looks after its own. Many years ago, many believed we were done for. They lost faith in us. They were mistaken. The Empire never falls. It may stumble, but it shall always rise up again.
And risen up we have. The economy has been rebuilt. We are among the first in the Galaxy to do this. Why, you may ask? Because we are strong. Do not listen to the Federation propaganda. They may have admirable ideals, but they have not the required skills to govern their people. The Empire does.
What would you prefer? The niceties the Federation brings? Or would you rather protection? Law? Order? To be able to make a good, decent living? This is what the Empire gives you. This is what I, your Emperor, give you.
Our brave Stormtroopers are being called upon once again. They shall march to War, War against the Federation and its allies. They shall bring Peace, Order and Stability to their people. The Empire shall once again span the entire Galaxy, I give you my word.
