The Only of First And Only Archive is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Oneself with an even hand, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, public floggings, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 4.758 billion Firsts have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Archive Prime. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 49.6%.

The frighteningly efficient First And Only Archivean economy, worth 869 trillion Crowns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 182,849 Crowns, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

Workers have seized control of the economy, babies are a small but significant export, sex offenders find themselves cut off from the ability to repeat their crimes, and First And Only Archive is increasingly belligerent on the international stage. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. First And Only Archive's national animal is the One, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Primum Mobile.

First And Only Archive is ranked 101,363rd in the world and 38th in Right to Life for Highest Drug Use, scoring 47.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
