In Terry Pratchett's Discworld, there is a small country where the king only needs to employ a couple guards. They also do general housekeeping and maintanence. It's a big castle, but they manage to find time to goof off nonetheless. Shawn is reading a magazine entitled "Rod and Arrow". It's the annual "Best of Truncheons" edition. It's supposed to be a collectible copy, but he'll probably use it for toilet paper in the privy later.
