The Pizza Loving Lucky Colony of Grapevine beetles is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Santa Claus with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, soft-spoken computers, and triple-decker prams. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.832 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 Grapivinian economy, worth 753 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 Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 196,688 Golden Candy Canes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's politicians are acknowledged as the most polite in the region to the dismay of comedians everywhere, pareidolic SETI scientists swear there's a message from aliens hidden within pi, mollycoddled youths run the country, and the phrase 'spreading like wildfire' is no longer in the public lexicon. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Grapevine beetles's national animal is the Leprechaun, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Athyism.

Grapevine beetles is ranked 11,403rd in the world and 22nd in World of Beetles for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 370.13 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
