The Eye of Candlewhisper Archive is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by First Person Singular with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, deadly medical pandemics, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 6.241 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, 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 2,275 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 364,601 🍒🍒🍒winlines, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,829,387 per year while the poor average 40,712, a ratio of 44.9 to 1.

People seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy, the native owl population is in permanent hibernation, the annual budget is heralded by the Treasury Minister donning a fake plastic mustache and giant star-shaped glasses, and city sidewalks are crowded with overweight people. 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 1,343rd in the world and 6th in Forest for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 10,067.11 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
