The Empire of Eldikar is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Holy Arch Demon Taevarth Sivath with an iron fist, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, public floggings, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.89 billion Eldikarians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Industry, and Environment also on the agenda, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ehiri. The average income tax rate is 84.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Eldikarian economy, worth a remarkable 1,112 trillion Troqoles a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 188,816 Troqoles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.

Top-shelf magazines feature risqué centrefold spreads of ladies' wrists, selling your granddad's clothes requires an incredible amount of paperwork, it is illegal to carry an umbrella when the official weather forecast predicts a sunny day, and footballers are doing aerobics in the sauna to build their hot weather endurance. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Eldikar's national animal is the Pixy Reaper, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Kryrnism.

Eldikar is ranked 2,054th in the world and 6th in Eientei Gensokyo for Most Corrupt Governments, with 238.74 Kickbacks Per Hour.
