Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Banana Bread Provider of Erastide is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Polgara with a fair hand, and renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, daily referendums, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 26.679 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 99.2%.

The large but stagnant Erastian economy, worth 348 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 13,048 ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

High-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, Erastide has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world, Maxtopian Grass flags adorn every college dorm room, and refugees from other nations are flocking to Erastide's border. 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 2nd in Lemuria and 1,108th in the world for Largest Public Sector, scoring 50 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
