Candlewhisper Archive was Commended by Security Council Resolution # 235

The Whispery Candle Thing of Candlewhisper Archive is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by April Chauers with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 7.944 billion Archivists enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

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 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 3,160 trillion oily seagull skulls 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 397,793 oily seagull skulls, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,128,989 per year while the poor average 38,921, a ratio of 54.7 to 1.

Police officers often head to work wearing onesies and fluffy pink bunny-slippers, Archivian housewives become unusually flustered when thinking about April Chauers, social networking sites have discussion groups devoted to planning terrorist attacks, and exam halls are littered with used needles and empty pill bottles. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Candlewhisper Archive's national animal is the Thirteen-Toed Ugly Dolphin Mutant Thing, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Perspicacity of Orange.

Candlewhisper Archive is ranked 989th in the world and 6th in Forest for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 23,700.77 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
