The AI See You of Candlewhisper Archive is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Frank Furter with a fair hand, and renowned for its flagrant waste-dumping, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 12.293 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, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Administration, although Education is also considered important, while Environment and Defense aren't funded at all. 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 5,375 trillion slightly grubby 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 437,295 slightly grubby dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

Immigrant teachers use fat stacks of cash as teaching aids, phone taps are frequently carried out by the police, there's never a spare chair in the retirement home, and an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Candlewhisper Archive's national animal is the Six-Fingered 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 33,066th in the world and 176th in Forest for Most Developed, scoring 73.53 on the Human Development Index.
