Using magical portals, pure-blooded Azlanti humans of Golarion's empire of settled distant New Thespera millennia before the Gap. After Azlant's destruction, the colonists were stranded from their homeworld, and instead set to conquering their new world and system using their superior magic and technology. After the Drift was revealed to them, they swiftly expanded their empire to neighboring star systems, founding the Azlanti Star Empire. To this date, humans of the Azlanti Star Empire consider those pure-blooded ancestors to be the universe's superior race.
A Starfinder Society scout ship exploring the Vast made first contact with the Star Empire in 269 AG, and the Star Empire promptly destroyed it. Every interaction between the known galaxy and the Star Empire since then has ended in similarly efficient and overwhelming violence — no ship has survived direct contact with the Star Empire, including two Pact Worlds diplomatic envoys.
The Star Empire easily conquered the Veskarium colony of Najin-Korozayas, unknowingly built near Star Empire-controlled space, only 10 years after first contact with the Star Empire. Its entire population was either enslaved or slaughtered.
The Star Empire controls twelve star systems, including:
- Aristia system, the home system of New Thespera.
- Thenekral system, a system of fertile and inhabited planets.
- Irdinang system, a system of uninhabited, resource-rich planetoids.
- Gjor system, home to the Neskinti race of Gjor III.
- The system of the planet Oyojii, home of the Vilderaro.
All non-Azlanti races on these worlds are considered second-class citizens at best, and many are enslaved.
The Star Empire is governed from New Thespera, home of the Aeon Throne that serves as the seat of power. The empire's supreme leader is called the Star Imperator, a role filled for the last two millennia by the Ixomander dynasty, including the current twin-sibling Star Imperators.
