The State of the Empire Report, produced under the aegis of the Grand Library, was the daily newspaper of the First Terran Empire. Ostensibly for the members of the Imperial Council (and later, the Emperor), The State of the Empire Report was available to all citizens; it was distributed widely and read by nearly everyone.
The Report was released every 24 hours at 06:00 Imperial Standard Time; incremental updates were released at six-hour intervals throughout the day.
The entire Report was daily imprinted on the Emperor's brain.
The Report, usually read on terminal or datapad, was massively hyperlinked to the Grand Library's database.
