The Only of First And Only Archive is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Oneself with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, parental licensing program, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 3.856 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 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. The average income tax rate is 70.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient First And Only Archivean economy, worth 690 trillion Crowns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 178,979 Crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Terrorist videos start by thanking their sponsors, a proud mining community is considering a rebellion after the Capital officially renamed them 'District XII', advertisements read like science journal articles complete with extensive references, and 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of First And Only Archive's radio stations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 142,668th in the world and 71st in Right to Life for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 55.86 Workforce Participation Rate.
