The Shi'ar Empire is a vast intergalactic empire that rules a million worlds.[1] It is an aggressively expansionist empire whose religion tells the Shi'ar to "marry" other cultures, by force if necessary, to become stronger.[2] The empire is ruled by an autocratic imperial government headed by the Majestor (male) or Majestrix (female) who is advised by a High Council made up of selected worlds. Conquered worlds are permitted to self-govern within limits given by the empire.[3]

Humankind has been exposed to the existence of the Shi'ar Empire only very recently, and, as such, much of the empire's illustrious history is unknown to humanity. Only a select handful of people know the Empire even exists -- although the fate of the universe has hinged upon the inner workings of the government many times.[citation needed]

According to Beast, the Shi'ar Empire is a "highly advanced type 5 space civilization",[4] presumably mentioning Kardashev scale.
