The Banana Bread Provider of Erastide is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Polgara with a fair hand, and renowned for its devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, intelligent population of 25.206 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 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 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Third party candidates are now gaining some representation in Parliament, teenagers are severely punished for being out too late, the government is spending millions on alternative clean-burning fuels, and photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in Polgara's bedroom. 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 4,628th in The North Pacific and 114,380th in the world for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -12 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.

Erastide is currently researching a cure.
