The AI See You of Candlewhisper Archive is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Frank Furter with a fair hand, and notable for its digital currency, rampant corporate plagiarism, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 11.976 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.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken individuals prioritizes Administration, with Industry, Social Policy, and Education also on the agenda, while Environment and Defense aren't funded at all. 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 5,224 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 436,287 slightly grubby dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,332,769 per year while the poor average 110,699, a ratio of 12.0 to 1.

Hit and run driving is no longer a crime - it's the national sport, people say that smog must be good for you because of its healthy green colour, burgers often list "miscellaneous meats" in their ingredients, and members of ethnic minorities are more often called "boy" or "girl" than by their actual names. 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 997th in the world and 16th in Forest for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 517.77 Bank.
