The Supplicant to the Throne of First And Only Archive is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Oneself with an even hand, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, pith helmet sales, and enslaved workforce. The hard-working, humorless population of 2.245 billion big dirty peasants are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, 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 51.2%.

The frighteningly efficient First And Only Archivean economy, worth 337 trillion Crowns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 150,393 Crowns, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

The government regularly reassures citizens that there are no monsters under their beds, lending firms are subject to strict government regulations, money can't buy happiness but it can buy immunity to prosecution, 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 small dirty peasant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Primum Mobile.

First And Only Archive is ranked 41,191st in the world and 11th in Avadam Inn for Most Extensive Public Healthcare, scoring 2,363.71 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
