The Colony of Arianna is a colossal, safe nation, notable for its burgeoning Dog population. The quiet, industrious population of 5.745 billion Ariannans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 17.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Ariannan economy, worth 191 trillion Euros a year, is quite specialized and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 33,302 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Voting is voluntary, gambling is outlawed, a well-funded social safety net protects the unfortunate, and a niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up. Crime is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arianna's national animal is the Dog, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Arianna is ranked 58,235th in the world and 230th in The Glorious Nations of Iwaku for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
