The Empire of Arachnid Empire is a massive, orderly nation, remarkable for its public floggings, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.505 billion Arachnid Empireans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zero Sector. The average income tax rate is 54.6%.

The sizeable but inefficient Arachnid Empirean economy, worth 53.9 trillion nothings a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Beef-Based Agriculture, Gambling, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 35,816 nothings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Organ donation is compulsory, all citizens are solely referenced by their allocated identity number, employers may fire workers without giving any reason, and all government facilities are built in the subterranean citadel of Zero Sector. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arachnid Empire's national animal is the The Tanker, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Arachnid Empire is ranked 138,534th in the world and 10th in Union of the Kind Ones for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -6.16 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
