The January Sales of Candlewhisper Archive is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Johnny Burger with a fair hand, and remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, absence of drug laws, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 7.544 billion Archivists are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Education, with Industry, Administration, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Environment and Defense are ignored. 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 2,929 trillion Orbicularis 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 388,257 Orbicularis, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,111,743 per year while the poor average 36,700, a ratio of 57.5 to 1.

Dubiously qualified Skandilundian barristers keep referring to laws as 'government guidelines', Brown Sugar 101 is a popular course at community colleges, stolen Reuben sandwiches are met with detailed and thorough police investigations, and Bigtopian interference in domestic elections is always democratically sanctioned. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Candlewhisper Archive's national animal is the Seven-Toed Anxious Dolphin Mutant Thing, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Candlewhisper Archive is ranked 166,454th in the world and 349th in Forest for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring -7.07 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
