The Banana Bread Provider of Erastide is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Polgara with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, complete lack of prisons, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 37.653 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 Education, Environment, 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 5,593 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 148,560 ducats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

It is mandatory to learn evolution in schools, government reports are now used to teach toddlers to read, scientists earn more grant money for reproducing old experiments than trying anything new, and modelling agencies send their clients to work in nursing homes. 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 369th in the world and 1st in Lemuria for Longest Average Lifespans, with 97.22 Years.
