The Intensive Care Unit of Candlewhisper Archive is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Dustin B Twinnears with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, rampant corporate plagiarism, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 15.19 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, corrupt, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. 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 6,910 trillion slightly manky 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 454,914 slightly manky dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens complain about a burning sensation after bathing, being Dustin B Twinnears has been voted one of the top ten most dangerous jobs, almost half of the child population live rough on the streets, and the atmosphere in Archivian boardrooms is turning more gay. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Candlewhisper Archive's national animal is the Six-Toed 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 302nd in the world and 6th in Forest for Most Influential, scoring 214,654 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
