The United Species of The Eridani Imperium is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Empress Rowan Bladeseer with an even hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.937 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 94.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Eridani economy, worth a remarkable 1,088 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 220,402 Septims, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The breathalyser pledge is a traditional part of marriages in The Eridani Imperium, the police insist that racism does not exist, garishly-decorated government buildings are being hailed as the height of 'religious nouveau', and the 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event. 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 13,895th in the world and 1st in Segmentum Eridani for Most Developed, scoring 82.04 on the Human Development Index.
