June 2004 Census:

Conducted concurrently with the Culling of the Inactive of 2004, data covers normal statistical information, common cultural ties between citizens, put some polls to the citizens which we'll be acting upon in the coming months, and, typical for the Empire, asked for silly questions for no particular reason. The Census was collected between May 25 and June 30th.
