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 rum-swilling pirates, parental licensing program, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 10.539 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 3,197 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 303,421 Septims, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow, the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, healthcare workers are flummoxed over the spike in foreign tourists with sudden-onset heart disease, and the strong are acquitted and the weak are trampled in trial by a Griffin. 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 54,353rd in the world and 25th in Gholgoth for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero valid endorsements.
