Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Banana Bread Provider of Erastide is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Polgara with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 28.848 billion Erastideans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Environment, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kytum. The average income tax rate is 99.2%.

The enormous but underdeveloped Erastian economy, worth a remarkable 2,488 trillion ducats a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming and Tourism. Average income is 86,273 ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens wishing to leave the country must surrender half their wealth to the government, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, and museums stand half-empty as all foreign exhibits are returned to their countries of origin. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Erastide's national animal is the peacock, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Erastide is ranked 406th in the world and 1st in Lemuria for Smartest Citizens, with 220.87 Quips Per Hour.
