The Banana Bread Provider of Erastide is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Polgara with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, prohibition of alcohol, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful population of 35.029 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, socially-minded 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 enormous but sluggish Erastian economy, worth a remarkable 2,592 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 Tourism, Trout Farming, and Information Technology. Average income is 74,002 ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, the nation is known as the cheapskates of Lemuria, and fashion models are guaranteed to be 100% genuinely as anorexic as they appear on magazine covers. 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 118th in the world and 1st in Lemuria for Most Pacifist, with 351.02 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
