How can I avoid Replit DB 429 rate limit?

Hello! I've been trying to perform certain functionality using objects stored in the Replit database (Python), but I've been discovering that most things will trigger a 429 rate limit exception!

Here are some examples:
Replits have a 5000 key limit, so I wanted to know what the error is when trying to add a 5001. I created a for loop to add 5000, keys, but this triggered a 429. Is there any way to mass add keys?

I then tried to clear the database using db.clear(), however this too will trigger a 429 if there are enough keys! How can I wipe my database?

Finally, I would like to search through the db to find something within the value (of the key : value pair). I created a for loop using the db.keys() to check each item one at a time, but of course this triggers a 429. How can I search for something within the database?

Is there any way to perform these 3 functionalities? Thanks!
