Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Banana Bread Provider of Erastide is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Polgara with a fair hand, and renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 29.181 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 2,517 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 14,014th in the world and 2nd in Lemuria for Highest Poor Incomes, with 77,927.21 Standard Monetary Units.
