Default How well known is the Tau Empire?

Is it known throughout the galaxy or just within the Ultima Segmentum? I would imagine anyone living in Segmentum has heard of it but i doubt imperial citizens on Terra or other sectors know about them?

Knowledge of successful alien empires would be on a need to know basis only. Imperial administration would be aware anywhere such knowledge would be necessary, but the average imperial citizen, even those within the Ultima Sector would likely have no idea about other successful alien empires.

Wouldn't you want your "citizens" to know of some "threat" of an alien empire to cower them into the old "we need to protect you, so join the Imperial Guard!" trick?

Nope, doing so would be to admit that the Emperor and the Imperium has threats and is not infallible, and knowledge opens the potential path to heresy.
