Imperial Archives and Historical Records Administration
The Imperial Archives & Records Administration would be a record keeping department of some sort. The need to keep accurate records and log all the necessary information for the Empire is very useful for clarification purposes. The person in charge would have to be VERY serious about their duties and do a real good job of it.
Imperial Ministry of Enlightenment
This is one of the most insidious and lesser known Ministries within the Empire. Its sole function is to spread the 'truth' about the Empire throughout the Galaxy, within the Empire and without. It handles and coordinates all major propagandistic activities and rallies as well as oversees all the media within the Empire.
