The United Species of The Eridani Imperium is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Imperātor Aenar Westfall with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, infamous sell-swords, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 10.577 billion Eridani have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ebonheart. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Eridani economy, worth a remarkable 3,210 trillion Septims a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 303,506 Septims, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

National stress about the waning heir-line is causing a rise in alopecia, claiming to have performed the Heimlich Maneuver is a popular defense for assault charges, pre-takeoff checks last longer than the flights themselves, and children are often punished for the sins of the fathers. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Eridani Imperium's national animal is the Griffin, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The Et'Ada.

The Eridani Imperium is ranked 2,276th in the world and 7th in Gholgoth for Most Patriotic, with 74.21 flags saluted per person per day.
