The AI See You of Candlewhisper Archive is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Augustus Embly with a fair hand, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 10.82 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 government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Social Policy. 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 4,775 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 441,404 slightly grubby dollars, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

Wealthy pranksters dump refuse on unsuspecting citizens from up high, the nation's weary schoolchildren excel at sport but must count scores on their fingers, stolen Reuben sandwiches are met with detailed and thorough police investigations, and terrorist videos start by thanking their sponsors. 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 325th in the world and 9th in Forest for Highest Crime Rates, with 93.08 Crimes Per Hour.
