The AI See You of Candlewhisper Archive is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Karla March with a fair hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, sprawling nuclear power plants, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 10.018 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, pro-business 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 4,329 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 432,173 slightly grubby dollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,413,390 per year while the poor average 38,558, a ratio of 62.6 to 1.

It is not politically correct to suspect that a serially convicted burglar might steal again, it's often raining men (hallelujah) in Monaster, crime is on the rise as online youths compete to vlog the most shocking scenes of violence, and disposable antiseptic wipes are considered a social necessity. 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 115th in the world and 2nd in Forest for Most Avoided, scoring 3,734.47 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
