|Animal||Colossal black widow|
The Democratic States of Arachnae is a very large, genial nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 143 million Arachnids enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 54.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but inefficient Arachnaean economy, worth 5.27 trillion Wehbbs a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 36,829 Wehbbs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.
Government statisticians explain census inaccuracies by declaring that "Sith happens", athletic teenagers are among the wealthiest members of society, the nation is renowned abroad for its love of blood and guts, and a favorite "life hack" for gap year backpackers is to pretend to be homeless for government handouts. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arachnae's national animal is the Colossal black widow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
