The Only of First And Only Archive is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Oneself with an even hand, and remarkable for its enslaved workforce, ubiquitous missile silos, and parental licensing program. The cynical, humorless population of 3.309 billion Firsts 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, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Archive Prime. The average income tax rate is 67.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient First And Only Archivean economy, worth 554 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 frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 167,666 Crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Members of the government all have oddly similar anecdotes about their childhoods, billions of Crowns are spent to take high-quality photos of the One Nebula, Tetris has been banned for its graphic violent content, and military parades quietly tiptoe their way through the streets. 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 52,384th in the world and 25th in Right to Life for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 1,626.59 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
