Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Banana Bread Provider of Erastide is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Polgara with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, hatred of cheese, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 26.231 billion Erastideans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken 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 99.0%.

The large but stagnant Erastian economy, worth 335 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 12,789 ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Marijuana is legal in the privacy of your own home, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, the government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system, and the art of conversation has been rediscovered. 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 1st in Lemuria and 186th in the world for Healthiest Citizens, with 31 Standard Bananas Ingested per capita per day.
