Imperial & Solomani Term Usage
Modern Imperial usage bases the year on the orbital period of Capital round its sun, which happens to have an almost identical orbital period to that of Terra around Sol. It was broadly adopted within the Imperium following the Solomani Rim War, in order to avoid the use of specifically Terranocentric metrics.
