The Empire of Elerian is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by High Emperor Saren Magnus with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, ritual sacrifices, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 14.455 billion Elerianites are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vaeloria. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 52.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Elerianian economy, worth a remarkable 2,205 trillion Gold Marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 152,542 Gold Marks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 588,755 per year while the poor average 27,152, a ratio of 21.7 to 1.

Cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high, the nation's school children are fluent in Klingon but lack basic mathematical skills, the government has returned all business to private ownership, and truancy officers have a hard time catching children trained in advanced camouflage skills. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Elerian's national animal is the Scorpian and its national religion is Chaos.

Elerian is ranked 46,863rd in the world and 16th in Kylaris for Most Inclusive, scoring 110 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
