If you look at real life, being evil doesn't mean you can't rule a country well. Look at Hitler's Germany. When he came to power, the Weimar Republic was in meltdown with an already-runaway economy entering the Great Depression and unable to repay war indemnities since years ago. By the time Germany started taking back lost territories that were lost before the war, it was a leading industrial powerhouse in Europe and a world power once again.

As for Palpatine, once we see past his evil desire to eradicate the Jedi and keep the Sith in supreme power, he is ultimately still a head of state and head of government to the vastly non-Force-wielding majority of the galactic population, and has a desk job to attend to after a night of torturing Jedi younglings.

Are there any descriptions/reviews etc. in existing literature that describe how well the Empire fared under Emperor Palpatine? How did life differ, both good and bad, between the Republic and the Empire for the common galactic pleb when they aren't in the Empire's way nor stubbornly believing everything Imperial is evil? How far did the Empire succeed in remedying the failings of the Republic and how much did it lose/sacrifice in other aspects to achieve that progress?

I'd like to know how much of this has been mentioned, and what they are, and therefore what was simply not mentioned. Thanks!
