About East India Company

Like the East India Company of old, we are an Imperially-aligned Mercantile Trading Company that seek to expand Imperial influence through the manipulation of local governments to benefit the expansion of our own faction, a strong private military and the collaboration of like-minded morally flexible pilots.

We have many different pilots under our employ... traders and combat pilots, explorers and miners. We even have a thriving player trade market where we offer other players materials needed to unlock various engineers at a fair price. There's a job for all kinds of pilots with us.

As a community, we are a progressive community that promotes tolerance and inclusion. Bigotry or bias of any sort will not be tolerated.

Elite: Dangerous was the birthplace of this community and is our main focus. In addition we have expanded into other games and will continue to do so in the future.
