The Incorporated States of Sehlysdre is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Caoilfhinn with a fair hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, pith helmet sales, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 28.386 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 11,179 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 393,855 Thalers, with the richest citizens earning 6.0 times as much as the poorest.

You're only as old as you feel, there's no such thing as bad publicity, children must make a homemade spinach and ricotta rotolo by high school or be held back, and cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high. 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 21,196th in the world and 856th in the South Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
