The Caldari people are noted for their strict adherence to capitalist principles, personal honor, and martial hardness.
It takes enormous aptitude, or tremendous luck, to get ahead in the Caldari State. Those who do are not easy to knock out of their positions.
The Corporate Heads
After the horrors of the Gallente-Caldari war, eight Megacorporations rose to the fore within the Caldari State. Thanks to the group-mind and subservience-oriented mindset that permeates State culture, these corporations were able to achieve dominance over the empire's administration with full support of the people. Or, at least, full official support - and who, exactly, is going to speak out of turn?
The corporations are split according to three ideological power blocs that affect both internal operation and external diplomacy. The first bloc is the Practicals, who, as the name suggests, care little about friend-or-foe politics and much prefer to focus on eventual profit. They will strike deals with anyone, whether it's a Caldari, some other empire citizen, or even a loathsome pirate.

The Patriots, meanwhile, concern themselves less with trade (though commerce can never be fully be removed from the Caldari mindset), but with maintaining what they see as the rightful place of the Caldari State, right at the apex of the empire order. For them, the engagement of trade is a means toward economical dominance.

- Tibus Heth is the former Executor of the Caldari State. After growing disgusted at how the State was being treated by the heads of the Megacorporations, he fomented a revolution and gained leadership part through a series of violent showdowns, and part through a diplomacy fuelled both by his own fury and the support of shadowy figures.
