Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Banana Bread Provider of Erastide is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Polgara with a fair hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, daily referendums, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 28.522 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 2,591 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 Tourism and Trout Farming. Average income is 90,873 ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The most popular WhoTube videos are ones featuring parodies of iconic songs, children as young as six shock their parents by coming out of the closet, cremation is compulsory for the deceased, and listless juries are assembled for the simplest of court cases. 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 33rd in the world and 1st in Lemuria for Best Weather, with 1,663 Meters Of Sunlight.
