The Incorporated States of Sehlysdre is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Caoilfhinn with a fair hand, and remarkable for its vat-grown people, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 34.606 billion Sehlysdreans live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, liberal, outspoken individuals juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sehlysdre City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Sehlysdrean economy, worth an astonishing 13,862 trillion Thalers a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Soda Sales industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 400,586 Thalers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

Ignorance is considered a politically desirable quality, pareidolic SETI scientists swear there's a message from aliens hidden within pi, garbage bags floating down the river are churned up by man-made rapids, and the military has adopted a weird double-fisted salute. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Sehlysdre's national animal is the Tiger, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Sehlysdre is ranked 273,520th in the world and 12,635th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring -29.5 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
