Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Banana Bread Provider of Erastide is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Polgara with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, complete lack of prisons, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 30.037 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 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 99.3%.

The enormous but underdeveloped Erastian economy, worth a remarkable 2,593 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 86,354 ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Museums stand half-empty as all foreign exhibits are returned to their countries of origin, space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, and citizens applying for their first jobs face fierce competition from the homeless. 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 125th in the world and 1st in Lemuria for Longest Average Lifespans, with 95.36 Years.
