The Democratic States of Arachnae is a very large, genial nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, barren, inhospitable landscape, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 150 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 Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 54.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Arachnaean economy, worth 5.56 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 37,083 Wehbbs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Group hugs break out during floor votes, churches across the land are hurriedly installing auto-tune for their choirs, community organizers have given up going door to door because nobody is home, and the nation's forests are full of treasure hunters in military-grade survival gear. 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.

Arachnae is ranked 76,064th in the world and 10th in Montressos for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 2,014.18 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
