The Banana Bread Provider of Erastide is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Polgara with an even hand, and remarkable for its teetotalling pirates, museums and concert halls, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 41.072 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 Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kytum. The average income tax rate is 99.0%.

The enormous but underdeveloped Erastian economy, worth a remarkable 3,121 trillion ducats a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 75,989 ducats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

When their backs are against the walls Erastideans look out for gay men, the government has legalised small-scale capitalism, the ruling party has a devil of a time keeping order in the ranks, and vacationers and business travelers are often warned that they may lose the right to vote if they spend too much time overseas. 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 251,374th in the world and 7th in Lemuria for Fattest Citizens, with 0.95 Obesity Rate.
