Well, we get a subtle hint as to what that might be from Emperor Palpatine.

On a more serious note, Sith follow the Sith Code which in most interpretations means... well, unlimited power. Which is then used to rule everyone else. Technically the Sith code preaches unlimited freedom through absolute power. But most of the time that's shortened to "rule the galaxy".

You've obviously never ruled a galaxy

It'd be anything but boring. You'd still have plots and intrigue, killing rebel scum, training the apprentice(s) that will one day betray you. A Sith's work is never done.

The Sith Code is about freedom - FOR ME! As long as there's someone, anyone, who disputes your right to do whatever you want as a Sith you can't settle down.

So you can never settle down as a sith. No wonder there more jedi then sith you live with frustration all your life.

While they "hide" behind the concept of freedom (which is true, but not the core of their belief), the Sith ultimately are selfish--they want whatever they desire. Marr mentions after Makeb that he doesn't want to be emperor, somebody else can have that role. He got what he wants, which is... a jihad, I guess. He's a warlord. Every Sith following Bane was essentially brainwashed to want the same thing, to have the Sith *Order* rule the galaxy, and so unify their efforts throughout the generations. But the Sith take whatever they want. Generally, this means more and more power, since power is magnetic to the corruptible, so that they can have more power. But you'll see many who are content in small roles, because that's what they wanted. To sit in a tomb, answering the same questions over and over again...

Marr is the exception since he's out lived most sith. He's not involved in the power plays, he's always put the needs of the empire before his own. That's why he is still around, he's being smart about it. By the end of rishi he's been on the council for over 40 or 50 years. Also his story indicates he's popular figure among the empire.

If every sith was like Marr, concerned with the empire vs themselves, they probably would have ruled the galaxy s long time ago

I mean, last time I ruled the galaxy I had tons of fun. Maybe you should listen to this guy, OP.

But then we wouldn't appreciate Marr so much. I think it's better the way it is.
