The Archive of Democracys is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Unknown with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, barren, inhospitable landscape, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 9.737 billion members are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Torchwood tower. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 73.8%.

The frighteningly efficient a member economy, worth a remarkable 1,142 trillion Pounds 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, Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. 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 117,372 Pounds, with the richest citizens earning 6.4 times as much as the poorest.

Defense lawyers suggestively note to juries how flagrantly happy victims were, acute politicians deride opposition members for being obtuse, grinding bureaucracy has the international wheels of justice turning slowly, and politicians are often seen with soldiers pointing guns at their heads. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Democracys's national animal is the Cat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Duty.

Democracys is ranked 20,067th in the world and 1st in The enforcers for Largest Governments, scoring 26.29 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
