The United Species of The Eridani Imperium is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Empress Ironhand with an iron fist, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, avant-garde cinema, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 8.365 billion Eridani are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

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 96.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Eridani economy, worth a remarkable 2,256 trillion Septims a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 269,723 Septims, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Late night talk show hosts are having a field day over Empress Ironhand's questionably sane new coalition partners, vegetables are crisper thanks to CRISPR, the national Police Academies have dedicated infant wings, and big game hunters travel to The Eridani Imperium to try their hand at shark-shooting. 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 4,641st in the world and 7th in Gholgoth for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 10,591.8 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
