The Incorporated States of Sehlysdre is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Caoilfhinn with a fair hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, smutty television, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 30.521 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 12,115 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 396,953 Thalers, with the richest citizens earning 5.2 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are less concerned with policy and more concerned with whether politicians "call 'em like they see 'em", terrorist videos start by thanking their sponsors, tampons are used as cheap fishing bobbers, and money always talks but the taboo subject of death just brings silence. 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 201st in the world and 4th in the South Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 43,263.03 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
