The United Species of The Eridani Imperium is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Empress Rowan Bladeseer with an even hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, otherworldly petting zoo, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.95 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ebonheart. The average income tax rate is 94.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Eridani economy, worth a remarkable 1,090 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 a large, well-organized black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. 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 220,370 Septims, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Getting an infected tattoo is considered a rite of passage in The Eridani Imperium, animal liberationists receive government funding to break into animal research labs, leather-clad individuals can be seen walking their slaves in public parks, and all gamers have been drafted into the military despite their lack of upper body strength. 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 62,542nd in the world and 2nd in Segmentum Eridani for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
