|“||We are an Empire ruled by the majority! An Empire ruled by a new Constitution! An Empire of laws, not of politicians! An Empire devoted to the preservation of a just society. Of a safe and secure society! We are an Empire that will stand for 10,000 years!||„|

Imperialists, also referred to as Evil Empires, are regimes that favor aggressive expansion of their territories, often in defiance of established codes of war or humanitarian standards. They are often seen as "rogue states," though many Imperialist empires have managed to lead highly successful conquests. Not all hegemonic organizations qualify as Imperialists; only governing bodies that fit the billing for "evil empire" and hold dominion over a certain area.
Imperialists are often ruled by corrupt or dystopian governments which are typically headed by a single, all-powerful Tyrant. Popular examples of Imperialists include the Galactic Empire in Star Wars and the Galactic Frieza Army in Dragon Ball Z.
