It seemed to end up that way, but the point I made when starting it was that as far as I could see there was no such thing as "Imperial Culture" beyond the very core worlds (for reasons that combatmedic pointed out). Beyond that, every world has its own government, law levels, and customs (some are very oppressive, some are very liberal), and it's very hard to see any cultural commonality between them. There doesn't even seem to be an "Imperial Bill of Rights" that applies to every citizen of every world in the imperium, and Imperial laws don't seem to take precedence over planetary laws.
