The Eye of Candlewhisper Archive is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by First Person Singular with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, pith helmet sales, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 6.659 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, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Education, although Industry, Administration, and Social Policy are also considered important, while Environment and Defense are ignored. 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 2,472 trillion 🍒🍒🍒winlines 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 371,237 🍒🍒🍒winlines, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,514,378 per year while the poor average 60,333, a ratio of 25.1 to 1.

Doughnut-makers claim their products are healthy because they are fortified with vitamins, lawyers are ordering red ink and 'Cease and Desist' rubber stamps in preparation for the return of copyright law, a cyber-war between file sharers and the music industry formats hard drives across the country, and the new "Bloodbath" orange tree autonomously seeks and destroys independent orchards. 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 154,293rd in the world and 281st in Forest for Most Extensive Public Healthcare, scoring 42.44 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
