The Empire are taken seriously because they whipped the Republic's butt. They trashed the center of galactic civilization and the best the Republic could do was keep things together enough that the Empire offered them a crappy peace deal since, despite their best efforts, the Empire just wasn't ready to take the whole of the Republic.

However, as is pointed out by several people in game, the Empire is pretty much a house of cards that will eventually fall. And they're proven right.
