Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Banana Bread Provider of Erastide is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Polgara with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 26.105 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, 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 99.6%.

The large but stagnant Erastian economy, worth 330 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 12,648 ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Eminent domain has been abolished, cremation is compulsory for the deceased, the military frequently holds bake sales to raise funds, and same-sex marriages are increasingly common. 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 12th in Lemuria and 142,553rd in the world for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -6 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
