"My son has a big mouth and is prone to outrageous speeches, but he's not a rebel. He'll see the value of the New Order when he grows older."
Captain Hiram Zataire, to ISB Agent Alexsandr Kallus[src]

The New Order was the name given to the political program and atheistic state religion adopted by the First Galactic Empire,[3] and the ideology of COMPNOR,[1] with the Grand Architect of the New Order responsible for its political message.[4] When Sheev Palpatine proclaimed himself Emperor in front of the whole Galactic Senate, he promised that his new regime would usher in a thousand years of peace by ending the corruption and ineptitude of the old political system of democracy.[2] The chief values of the regime, such as order, control, and the rule of law, were written on a stone spire located on Monument Plaza, Coruscant.[5]

Behind the scenesEdit

Conceptually, the New Order bears some similarities with the ideology of "Positive Christianity", the official religion of Nazi Germany, which, despite its name, placed a heavy emphasis on state worship while discouraging beliefs rooted in divinity.
