"Good morning!  You've reached Imperial Headquarters. 

How may I direct your call?"

Operations Division:

Operations Chief:

  Nazionale

Subcommander:

  Custer the Greater

Day to day, nuts and bolts, well-oiled machinery that makes the Empire run smoothly.  Or appear to run smoothly.

Bureaucracy usually holds back large organizations, but the red tape of the Empire is stained by the blood of the unwise and disloyal. Forged in the fires of burning paperwork and smoldering ashes of doomed careers and the false hope of the enemy, the Operations Division is exacting and lethal in its regimental control of than rank and file of the civilian side of life in the Empire.

 

Departments within the Division of Operations:

A complete and exhaustive list of all the bureaus, departments, and agencies that comprise the Operations Division cannot be published on the web.
The resulting list would crash the internet as we know it.

The program has long been a means for the Empire to inspire and unite minions to excel in the space race, an interstellar grand prix from Mercury to Jupiter and back.

    Are you afraid?  You will be.

What does the Ops Division do?  It makes sure things get done.  Someone has to collect all those tax dollars and spend your money for you.  The Ops Div is there!

Also, Ops runs boring stuff such as subways, trains, and the space elevator:

That toll you pay when you ride on the space elevator, that's the Ops Div at work.
