The Banana Bread Provider of Erastide is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Polgara with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 24.051 billion 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 is mainly concerned with Social Welfare, although Education and the Environment are on the agenda. 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.

High-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', hunters have been known to lose limbs while attempting to 'play tag' with their prey, and an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents. 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 10th in Lemuria and 122,609th in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -23 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
