The Pizza Loving Lucky Colony of Forest beetles is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Santa Claus with a fair hand, and renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, lack of airports, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.797 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 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 99.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Foristian 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 196,909 Golden Candy Canes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All beauty contests have been banned, country folk are sent to obligatory boarding schools to learn how to be civilized, excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions, and residents of newly dried out bays live in fear of leaky dikes. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Forest beetles's national animal is the Leprechaun, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Athyism.

Forest beetles is ranked 12,341st in the world and 78th in World of Beetles for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 354.76 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
