A race in the Elder Scrolls video game series.

Natives of the civilized, cosmopolitan province of Cyrodiil, the Imperials are well-educated and well-spoken. Imperials are also known for the discipline and training of their citizen armies. Though physically less imposing than the other races, the Imperials have proved to be shrewd diplomats and traders, and these traits, along with their remarkable skill and training as light infantry, have enabled them to subdue all the other nations and races, and to have erected the monument to peace and prosperity that comprises the Glorious Empire.

It is assumed that Imperials are based on the Romans, as it is assumed that Bretons are based on the French.
As an Imperial, you are best equipped for the warrior type.

The unit of measurement from the british empire the "US unit" was based on. Very similar but with some differences. The pint, and therefore the gallon, is smaller in US than imperial units.
America took the british imperial unit, made the pint smaller because they can't handle their drink and called it "american" so that using any other standard of measurement would be unpatriotic.
