The Republic of Sidhelyrika is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Sidhe with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, frequent executions, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic, humorless population of 19.648 billion Sidhelyrikans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sidhelyrika City. The average income tax rate is 78.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The enormous but inefficient Sidhelyrikan economy, worth a remarkable 1,467 trillion feys a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 74,698 feys, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms, customs officials often double as wedding officiants, bike rage is all the rage, and the only thing slower than the economy is the exchange where it's managed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sidhelyrika's national animal is the griffin, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Sidhelyrika is ranked 5,756th in the world and 309th in Lazarus for Most Cultured, scoring 139 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
