Isn't this time period suppose to be Galactic Republic vs. Sith?

I don't understand where the Imps came from. I thought the galactic empire dawned the beginning of the entity know as the Imperials. How did they exist 3000 years before and still wear such similar uniforms and have similar accents?

I hear so frequently ingame dialogue like "imp lover" or "imp this" and "imp that".
Shouldn't they be saying "sith this" and "sith that"?

The Sith busted up the Republic and then formed the Sith Empire.

The Imperials are therefore refering to the alleigance to the aforementioned Sith Empire.

One of many (afaik there's been what, 6 of them in all of galactic history, including both Palpatine's and Krayt's?).
