The Democratic Oasis of Silverfish37 is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Khalix with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.073 billion Silverfish love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Administration, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Silverton. The average income tax rate is 80.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Silverfishian economy, worth 234 trillion silvers a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 113,077 silvers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Large sections of Silverfish37 have been named national reserves to protect the native tribes living there, agreeing to appear on TV is often the best way to access social care, roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, and the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Silverfish37's national animal is the fish, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Silverfish37 is ranked 8,307th in the world and 108th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.57 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
