The Pizza Loving Lucky Colony of Zophie beetles is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Santa Claus with a fair hand, and notable for its lack of airports, smutty television, and compulsory vegetarianism. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.837 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 98.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Zophyian economy, worth 751 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 195,952 Golden Candy Canes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Young and brooding teens are welcomed with open arms to the Dogwarts School of Strangeness and Sorcery, tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, solid-gold toilets are Zophyian prisons' least expensive furnishings, and listless juries are assembled for the simplest of court cases. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zophie beetles's national animal is the Leprechaun, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Athyism.

Zophie beetles is ranked 3,584th in the world and 35th in World of Beetles for Smartest Citizens, with 147.79 quips per hour.
