The Peripatetic Panopticon of Candlewhisper Archive is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Chancellor-Elect Amy Ortega with an even hand, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, complete lack of prisons, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 5.379 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, liberal, 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 1,818 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 338,092 🍒🍒🍒winlines, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,535,184 per year while the poor average 45,602, a ratio of 33.7 to 1.

Artists from across the nation compete to renovate the restrooms of old government buildings, artists are pillars of society, city sidewalks are crowded with overweight people, and citizens sport solarium-kissed tans that are perfectly even except for the occasional melanoma. 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, and its national religion is Broadband Connectivity.

Candlewhisper Archive is ranked 180,255th in the world and 279th in Forest for Safest, scoring 3.88 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
