The Fiefdom of Archaic Civilizations is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Terence McKenna with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, devout population of 2.079 billion Archaic Civilizationsians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large government prioritizes Education, although Welfare, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Law & Order and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gobleki Tepe. The average income tax rate is 56.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Archaic Civilizationsian economy, worth 142 trillion Psilocybins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 68,441 Psilocybins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government's new 'Crime Can Fight Itself' policy appears to be backfiring rather badly, members of the government all have oddly similar anecdotes about their childhoods, flash floods that dams could have controlled regularly ravage small towns in mountain valleys, and the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms. Crime is totally unknown. Archaic Civilizations's national animal is the Shamans, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Shamanism.

Archaic Civilizations is ranked 35,969th in the world and 1,777th in Osiris for Most Developed, scoring 63.7 on the Human Development Index.
