The Banana Bread Provider of Erastide is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Polgara with a fair hand, and notable for its hatred of cheese. The compassionate, intelligent population of 25.496 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Social Welfare, the Environment, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kytum. The average income tax rate is 99%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods, private law firms are unheard of, it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, and pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are sold freely by the government. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Erastide's national animal is the peacock, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the ducat.

Erastide is ranked 13th in Lemuria and 119,694th in the world for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -18 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
