The Silverfish Army of Ruguo is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Silverfishy with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 5.97 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 prioritizes Education, although Environment, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. 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 781 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 highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 130,898 Suoyis, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Rugan husbands are dead good at fathering kids, psychiatrists bizarrely accompany Silverfishy to meetings with foreign heads of state, civil servants are no longer allowed to cross their t's, and pre-takeoff checks last longer than the flights themselves. 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 3,203rd in the world and 11th in Wintreath for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 154.88 Bank.
