The Holy Black Zombie Nation of Dark beetles is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its teetotalling pirates, triple-decker prams, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 638 million Beetles are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 86.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Dark beetlesian economy, worth 62.5 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 97,922 Golden Candy Canes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Saying "don't do anything that Leader wouldn't do" doesn't exclude a great deal, brave curators do battle with disorganised government libraries, the best way to be heard in politics is to speak softly and carry a big comedy prop, and piracy is the nation's most popular pastime. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dark beetles's national animal is the Vampire Reindeer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Dark beetles is ranked 199,100th in the world and 76th in World of Beetles for Largest Black Market, with 20.7 billion Standard Monetary Units.
