The Iskian Empire are a large galactic empire ruled with an iron claw by the Isk. The Isk consider other races as lacking rights unless they specify they deserve rights, and they have forcefully absorbed hundreds of races that they have first dissected, often brought into war with (due to the races' negative reactions to being dissected by such forceful creatures), and eventually either coming to a mutual understanding or simply fully absorbing the races by force. While they don't particularly care what a race's culture is like, they reserve the right to determine the roles each race will operate under the Empire as - as an example, the Tlillisk are delegated to scouting to rival worlds while the Klutine are made to be planetary scouts to oft-dangerous worlds not known to be operated by rival sapients. While considered lawful evil by other races, they do not consider themselves evil and simply do what they think is best - they deal with space pirates to aid their own cause with items and the like that they would have more difficulty getting otherwise or can obtain better deals through the black market trade while the dissecting of new races for their science teams and to determine whether they are sapient or not; it simply speaking and having structures and tools they consider not enough proof of intelligence. This concept could be compared to a human seeing chimpanzees use tools and displaying an impressive degree of intelligence, but would they let them don armor and weapons to fight in wars alongside normal human troops? Not usually.
They are in an ongoing but minor war with the UFCL; the two affiliations do not often go out of their way to attack one another, though if they encounter each other they often battle. As with nearly all other factions, they oppose the Chaos Legions of Diimons, which seeks the violent absorption of all others in this universe and all others like it.
