The Silverfish Army of Ruguo is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Silverfishy with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, ban on automobiles, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cheerful population of 6.382 billion Rugans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yinwei. The average income tax rate is 96.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Rugan economy, worth 920 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 quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 144,283 Suoyis, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Yinwei, treason is relative, the Foreign Ministry thinks an eye for an eye is a blindingly good idea, and a surprising number of police officers have been arrested for Silverfish sacrifices. 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 190,442nd in the world and 271st in Wintreath for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -4.47 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
