At this point in galactic history, the Republic is not the only government state in the SW universe. The Empire is the Sith empire wich competes with the republic on the galactic political scene. Very much like the USA and the USSR of the Cold War.

It also seems to me that the Sith are the race of people that practice a anti-Jedi religion which will later evolve into the 2 man Sith teams of the SW movies.

They say the emperor is undying, obviously a person that is sustained by the dark side resulting in an unnaturally long life.

The Galactic Empire of Emperor Palpatine is the resurrected version and goal of the original Sith Empire, hence the same type of uniforms and the same general shape of the ships.
couldn't also be darth sidious because wasn't he darth plagueis the wises apprentace and didn't know how to stay alive forever until darth sidious killed him in his sleep and didm't darth sidious learn how to stay alive forever like his master
Peace is a lie,there is only passion. Through passion,i gain strength.Through strength,i gain power. Through power,i gain victory. Through victory,my chains are broken.The force shall free me.- THE SITH CODE

After centurys they started to breed among themselfs, and the Half Breed Siths x Humans assumed the power Naga Sadow, Ludo Kresh, Marka Ragnos, so on...
They weren't enslaved. More like opressed, but the Sith started willingly worshiping the Dark Jedi soon enough, seeing them as gods.

That being said, the Emperor's biological father was Sith, but his mother was (most likely) human. So he is like.. 1/4 Sith considering that in those times the "purebloods" weren't all that "pure" already.

You know more then once I thought that.

As far as I know, his name was lost a long time ago and is simply the emperor.

No. Sidious did not know how to live forever. He states this in the movies.
"Definition: 'Love' is making a shot to the knees of a target 120 kilometers away using an Aratech sniper rifle with a tri-light scope. Statement: This definition, I am told, is subject to interpretation. Obviously, love is a matter of odds. Not many meatbags could make such a shot, and fewer would derive love from it. Yet for me, love is knowing your target, putting them in your targeting reticle, and together, achieving a singular purpose, against statistically long odds."

The book says he is Pureblood, but after performing the ritual that made him immortal (absorbing all energy on a planet, to include life energy and the Force itself) he became something more than Sith. A new being. That is why he doesn't look like a Sith.

His Darth name is Vitiate. Read the Revan novel. It is good and explains quite a bit about the Emperor.
