The Democratic Oasis of Silverfish37 is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Khalix with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, free-roaming dinosaurs, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.491 billion Silverfish 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 Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Silverton. The average income tax rate is 91.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Silverfishian economy, worth 435 trillion silvers 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, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 124,784 silvers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Serial commas clarify the relationship between one's lackeys, the taxpayers, and kinsfolk, blue sky thinkers are reminded that the firmament is actually more of a grey-ish colour, much of Silverfish37's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence, and family isn't who you're born with but who you abandon in foreign countries. 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 vampire, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Silverfish37 is ranked 35,019th in the world and 116th in The Leftist Assembly for Highest Drug Use, scoring 98.2 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
