The Web of Life and Destiny

Population352 million


The Oppressed Peoples of The Web of Life and Destiny is a huge, pleasant nation, notable for its ban on automobiles and irreverence towards religion. The democratic population of 352 million Spiderans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 9.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Web of Life and Destinyian economy, worth 15.5 trillion Universes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Tourism, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 43,936 Universes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Many aides in Leader's office are known to be serial jaywalkers, posing for pictures is an integral part of military training, right-wingers complain that too many people are suckling at the welfare teat, and prison visits increase substantially during election years. Crime is well under control. The Web of Life and Destiny's national animal is the Spider.

The Web of Life and Destiny is ranked 241,489th in the world and 9,599th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 721.61 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
