For the most Part, I'd say that Palpatine would have left the majority of the neutral powers be, unless they posed any direct threat to him. The Hapen consortium, Mandalorians, the Banking Clans and Trade empires.

But if EP 1 taught us anything about Palpatine, it was that he was a shrewd manipulator, and had the Trade Federation and Banking clans in the palm of his hands. It's likely that even neutral governments and powers in the galaxy where, in some form of another working alongside the empire, either through bribes, blackmail, conquest or threat of conquest.
