The Silverfish Army of Ruguo is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Silverfishy with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, state-planned economy, and smutty television. The compassionate population of 6.029 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 95.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Rugan economy, worth 801 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 Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 133,000 Suoyis, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

4-year-olds are often found reminiscing about the 'good old days', the government has enacted freedom of information, animal liberationists receive government funding to break into animal research labs, and the recital of citations that follows any political speech can be longer than the speech itself. 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 236,717th in the world and 312th in Wintreath for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -15.13 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
