Second largest human organization, right next to the United Worlds Alliance. Historians agree that the Empire’s existence starts a few years after the Dispertion.
Imperialists claim, that the First Emperor had laid the foundations for the new organisation even before the Dispertion occured, supposedly foreseeing the fall of the old world.

Until this day the exact location of this system remains one of the closely guarded secrets.

That is why the head of the empire is the Emperor endowed with near absolute power.
