The Nomadic Peoples of Schylyne is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, infamous sell-swords, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 405 million Schylyneans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Administration. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Schylynean economy, worth 54.2 trillion Terrabytecoins a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 133,916 Terrabytecoins, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 544,070 per year while the poor average 21,912, a ratio of 24.8 to 1.

A firework a day does not in fact keep the doctor away, children's books regularly feature formerly distressed damsels suing their princes, the new Really Big Telescope has been praised for presenting pictures of bright dots in unprecedented detail, and small businesses are gobbled up almost daily by corporate giants. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Schylyne's national animal is the Gargantuan Zombunny, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Schylyne is ranked 65,586th in the world and 2,292nd in the Rejected Realms for Most Politically Free, scoring 65.71 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
