The AI See You of Candlewhisper Archive is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Jan Yew-Harry with a fair hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, deadly medical pandemics, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 9.565 billion Archivists live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Monaster. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Archivian economy, worth a remarkable 4,045 trillion slightly grubby dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 422,989 slightly grubby dollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,504,250 per year while the poor average 32,969, a ratio of 76.0 to 1.

The "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Monaster Times is sold out, ports have ground to a halt as no boat can reach them without trespassing, movement-triggered sensors mean that for every door that closes another one opens, and the judicial branch is strongly influenced by major corporations. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Candlewhisper Archive's national animal is the Six-Fingered Ugly Dolphin-Octopus Thing, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Unlimited Cheap Data.

Candlewhisper Archive is ranked 174,188th in the world and 601st in Forest for Most Ignorant Citizens, with 0.42 Missed References Per Hour.
