The Republic of Eldrath is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Arthur Leopold Tridens with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, free-roaming dinosaurs, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.468 billion Eldrathians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Anor Londo. The average income tax rate is 88.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Eldrathian economy, worth a remarkable 1,035 trillion Eldrathis 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, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 231,783 Eldrathis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

It turns out that money can buy you happiness, Eldrath's heavy congestion charges are the bane of motorists' lives, the fate of the world literally rests on Arthur Leopold Tridens's fingers, and graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Eldrath's national animal is the Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is The Esoteric Order of Dagon.

Eldrath is ranked 4,207th in the world and 8th in Eientei Gensokyo for Highest Average Incomes, with 231,783.85 Standard Monetary Units.
