Calendar of the Galactic Empire

Taken from an Imperial Communique sent widely over the holonet;

“With the formation of the First Galactic Empire, the Imperial Bureau of Standards (IBoS) institutes these new Galactic Empire calendar standards;

The existing Galactic Republic standard of 100 paraseconds to a second is maintained.

The existing Galactic Republic standard of 60 seconds to 1 minute is maintained.

The existing Galactic Republic standard of 60 minutes to 1 hour is maintained.

The existing Galactic Republic standard of 24 hours to 1 day cycle (in honor of the Coruscant day) is maintained.

The existing Galactic Republic standard of 5 day cycles to 1 week is maintained.

The existing Galactic Republic standard of 46 day cycles per month is maintained.

The existing Galactic Republic standard of 8 months in a galactic year (in honor of the eight founding worlds of the Old Republic – Alderaan, Brentaal, Coruscant, Corellia, Duro, Humbarine, Kuat, and Rendili) is maintained. These months shall be maintained as; Corusca, Aldara, Dara, Corella, Kata, Humbara, Brentara, and Rendala in order of their worlds signing.

The proper dating technique of (epoch)(year) : (month) : (day) : (hour) : (minute) : (second) . (parasecond) shall be maintained.

The Galactic Empire epoch will begin on the 25th Day of Kata in the 1,958th year of the former Galactic Republic (GR) epoch. This date shall universally be shown as 0:5:25. The previous day shall be shown as GR1958:5:24. The practice of referring to the Old Republic epoch as OR shall be maintained, with the formation of the Republic continuing to be OR0:1:1, and ending with the formation of the Galactic Republic the day after OR25560:7:13, with the Galactic Republic formation being GR0:7:14. Only previous epochs will require an epoch stamp, not the Galactic Empire epoch. Dates lacking an epoch mark on official documents shall be assumed to be Galactic Empire epoch.

The 25th day of Kata will be a Galactic Observance named “Empire Day” in honor of the formation of the Galactic Empire.

All existing local observances shall be maintained or ended on a case by case basis. Please see your local Imperial Governor’s office for more information on your planet’s observances, thank you."
