Sorry, you can't; simple as that.

There is documentation easily found on the net describing how to create a hidden user account. However, this documentation is only for the log on screen. Meaning, that it hide user accounts from the log on screen.
I am also not certain that even were it possible to create a hidden Administrator account EE rules would allow us to describe the method, especially with a request to hide the most powerful account from other Administrators.
