The Pizza Loving Lucky Colony of Cursed beetles is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Santa Claus with a fair hand, and notable for its compulsory vegetarianism, keen interest in outer space, and prohibition of alcohol. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.801 billion Beetles love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yggdrasil. The average income tax rate is 99.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Cursian economy, worth 747 trillion Golden Candy Canes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Pizza Delivery, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 196,586 Golden Candy Canes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sleeping on the job is recommended, the Forestry Department has decided you really can't fight fire with fire, laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts, and children prefer to begin their day with push-ups rather than breakfast. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cursed beetles's national animal is the Leprechaun, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Athyism.

Cursed beetles is ranked 11,650th in the world and 33rd in World of Beetles for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 366.15 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
