The Incorporated States of Sehlysdre is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Caoilfhinn with a fair hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 27.074 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, pro-business, outspoken individuals juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, 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 10,656 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 393,617 Thalers, with the richest citizens earning 5.9 times as much as the poorest.

The hardest thing for a mining operation to dig through is government red tape, the nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments, grumbling early morning commuters bemoan having to travel to work in the dark, and the best way to be heard in politics is to speak softly and carry a big comedy prop. 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 168,702nd in the world and 7,344th in the South Pacific for Safest, scoring 1.37 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
