The Silverfish Army of Ruguo is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Silverfishy with an iron fist, and renowned for its avant-garde cinema, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical population of 5.039 billion Rugans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Administration, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yinwei. The average income tax rate is 94.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Rugan economy, worth 575 trillion Suoyis a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 114,261 Suoyis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed, the national anthem is a rather effective sleeping aid, troublemakers boast about how many times they have to visit their therapist, and the nation is renowned abroad for its love of blood and guts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ruguo's national animal is the Silverfish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Forgotten.

Ruguo is ranked 25,113th in the world and 21st in Wintreath for Nudest, with 215.25 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
