The Eye of Candlewhisper Archive is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by First Person Singular with an even hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, infamous sell-swords, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 5.893 billion Archivists enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute 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 2,064 trillion 🍒🍒🍒winlines a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 350,307 🍒🍒🍒winlines, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,437,764 per year while the poor average 56,351, a ratio of 25.5 to 1.

Children as young as six shock their parents by coming out of the closet, auditors are gutting every governmental department, citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes, and sex changes are routinely performed at Candlewhisper Archive's hospitals. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Candlewhisper Archive's national animal is the Three-Toed Indecent Dolphin Mutant Thing, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Candlewhisper Archive is ranked 30,139th in the world and 93rd in Forest for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 74.05 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
