Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Banana Bread Provider of Erastide is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Polgara with a fair hand, and notable for its frequent executions, strictly enforced bedtime, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 26.485 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, 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 99.5%.

The large but stagnant Erastian economy, worth 345 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 13,043 ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The mining industry has taken a hit from tighter environmental regulations, major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, eminent domain has been abolished, and a government program is underway to revitalize Erastide's beaches. 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 13th in Lemuria and 146,232nd in the world for Most Avoided, scoring -6,546.945 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
