The Banana Bread Provider of Erastide is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Polgara with an even hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, strictly enforced bedtime, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 34.218 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, Welfare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kytum. The income tax rate is 100.0%.

The enormous but sluggish Erastian economy, worth a remarkable 2,598 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 75,953 ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Newspapers are celebrating Polgara saving over a million cats from trees, edutainment video games are taking Erastide's students to the next level, earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, and space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down. 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 157,621st in the world and 4th in Lemuria for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring zero on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
