The Banana Bread Provider of Erastide is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Polgara with an even hand, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful population of 37.908 billion Erastideans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kytum. The income tax rate is 100%.

The Erastian economy, worth a remarkable 5,647 trillion ducats a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 148,978 ducats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

A government program is underway to revitalize Erastide's beaches, wildlife have trouble navigating the electric fences surrounding national forests, politicians who vacation in East Lebatuck lose their jobs upon their return, and government crews work tirelessly to retake the suburbs from organized packs of raccoons. 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 208,043rd in the world and 8th in Lemuria for Most Avoided, scoring 0.16 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
