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 complete lack of prisons, ritual sacrifices, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.98 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 Defense, Education, 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 1,092 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 219,346 Septims, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government considers it a sacred duty to video bikini-clad beach swimmers, children are regularly married to each other to secure alliances between families, psychiatrists that date patients are congratulated on their romantic conquests, and an alabaster statue of an ancient cat-deity takes pride of place in the centre of Ebonheart. 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 139,889th in the world and 3rd in Segmentum Eridani for Most Pro-Market, scoring -65.33 on the Rand Index.
