The January Sales of Candlewhisper Archive is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Johnny Burger with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 7.353 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, although Industry, Administration, and Social Policy are 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 2,829 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 384,868 Orbicularis, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,059,815 per year while the poor average 37,657, a ratio of 54.7 to 1.

The Museum of Blackacrean War Crimes is located on "Blackacre Did Nothing Wrong Avenue", the comic book series 'Johnny Burger and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, all work and no play has rendered the nation's children somewhat intelligent but also remarkably dull, and all statues and paintings of dogs are being destroyed to avoid offending cat-lovers. 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 595th in the world and 11th in Forest for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 95.07 Workforce Participation Rate.
