The Incorporated States of Sehlysdre is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Caoilfhinn with a fair hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, vat-grown people, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 35.097 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 14,079 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 401,155 Thalers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

Brown Sugar 101 is a popular course at community colleges, evenings at university debating societies often end with everyone acknowledging both sides may well be right, organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, and interest in globalism never flags. 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 268,369th in the world and 10,644th in the South Pacific for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring -31.46 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
