The Intensive Care Unit of Candlewhisper Archive is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Dustin B Twinnears with a fair hand, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, smutty television, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 18.558 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, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Administration, although Industry and Education are also considered important, while Environment and Defense receive no funds. 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 8,611 trillion slightly manky 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 464,040 slightly manky dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

Restaurants have added Molotov cocktails to the menu, forgetting to pay your annual passport bill is a leading cause of deportations, bad decisions are made very quickly, and the nation's leader is normally just referred to as "snuggle-wuggle-huggy-bear". Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Candlewhisper Archive's national animal is the Six-Toed 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 30,003rd in the world and 5th in Forest for Most Pro-Market, scoring 85 on the Rand Index.
