The Pizza Loving Lucky Colony of Cyan beetles is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Santa Claus with a fair hand, and renowned for its compulsory vegetarianism, keen interest in outer space, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.788 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 99.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Cyanian economy, worth 740 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 and Pizza Delivery. Average income is an impressive 195,377 Golden Candy Canes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes, anti-government web sites are springing up, prisoners regularly escape detention posing as scarecrows, and funerals are often rudely interrupted by juggling clowns shouting for volunteers from the audience. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cyan beetles's national animal is the Leprechaun, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Athyism.

Cyan beetles is ranked 11,459th in the world and 25th in World of Beetles for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 368.97 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
