Other Imperial Organizations 

Most of the organizations comprising the Imperium are divisions of the vast Adeptus Terra (the Priesthood of Earth). There are countless divisions, some are so secretive their existence is known only to a few. The most well known of the "secret" organizations is the Officio Assassinorum. Other organizations are secret enough that nothing besides their mere existence is known, such as the Officio Sabatorum and theTemplars Psykologis.

The most important and well-known Imperial organizations include:

The Administratum, responsible for administrative functions, it is the largest division, numbering countless scribes and petty officials. It administrates the Imperium at every level, assessing tithes and taxes, conducting population censuses, recording and planning. It consists of innumerable subdivisions, offices and and departments.

Departmento Munitorum, a department of the Administration, responsible for administering and supplying the Imperial Guard.

Adeptus Astra Telepathica, the Imperium's network of astropaths, responsible for transmitting faster-than-light messages through the Imperium.

Adeptus Astronomica, responsible for maintaining the Astronomicanwhich is used by the Navigators to navigate through the warp.

Navis NobiliteNavigators who pilot Imperial vessels through the Warp.

Adeptus Mechanicus, technicians and scientists who build and maintain Imperial equipment, vessels, and weapons of war.

Adeptus Custodes, guardians of the Emperor's physical form.

Adeptus Arbites, galactic police force which enforces the Lex Imperia - the Imperial law.

Officio Assassinorum, the most subvert of all the known Imperial divisions, the assassins are responsible for removing key leaders of an enemy.

Adeptus Ministorum, (also "The Ecclesiarchy ") the Imperial church which maintains the Imperial creed and faith.

The military forces of the Imperium include:

The Imperial Guard is the primary fighting force of the Imperium, so numerous in size that even the Departmento Munitorum cannot place a figure on the number of Guardsmen under arms at any one time

The Collegia Titanica is the section of the Adeptus Mechanicus that includes the Imperial Titans, the colossal god-machines. The Collegia is also known as the "Adeptus Titanicus" (a contraction of "Adeptus Mechanicus Collegia Titanica")

The Adepta Sororitas (also "the Sisterhood" or "Daughters of the Emperor") are an all-woman subdivision of the religious organization known as the Ecclesiarchy or Ministorum. The Sisterhood's Orders Militant serve as the Ecclesiarchy's fighting arm, mercilessly rooting out corruption and heresy within humanity and every organization of the Adeptus Terra.

The Adeptus Astartes (commonly known as the Space Marines) are the most elite and feared fighting forces of the Imperium. They are entrusted with the most dangerous missions, such as lightning raids behind enemy lines, infiltration and tunnel fighting. Through selection, training and conditioning, Marines are physically, mentally and spiritually superior to any other Imperial soldier.
