The Democratic Oasis of Silverfish37 is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Khalix with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.294 billion Silverfish are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Administration, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Silverton. The average income tax rate is 82.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Silverfishian economy, worth 261 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 113,811 silvers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Trails to natural wonders are littered with trash from reality film crews, the endangered saltwater humpback fish is only seen in captivity programs, rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century, and corporate lobbying has been outlawed. 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 177,559th in the world and 167th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Fattest Citizens, with 7.57 Obesity Rate.
