The Incorporated States of Sehlysdre is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Caoilfhinn with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, pith helmet sales, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 30.503 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 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 12,097 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 396,605 Thalers, with the richest citizens earning 5.2 times as much as the poorest.

Under love's heavy burden Caoilfhinn sinks lower in the political right's esteem, the only record being broken at sporting events is the highest death toll, billions of Thalers are spent to take high-quality photos of the Tiger Nebula, and spontaneous nocturnal decapitation is considered 'death by natural causes' for enemies of Sehlysdre. 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 1,266th in the world and 25th in the South Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 13,113.29 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
