Chalyl (IPA: /ˈt͡ʃa.lɪl/, Öf: Tjalil, IPA: /t͡ɕɑlɪl/), officially the Idealistic Republic of Chalyl (Öf: Zondrehts Ycenaltór ea Tjalil jä, IPA: /ʑondrɛ:t͡ɕ ʏθɛnɑlto:r ə t͡ɕɑlɪl jæ/), is a country located in northwestern Soltenna, within the continent of Miraria. It borders Qgam to the north and Herdek to the southeast.

It is thought that the name originated as a corruption of the Qgam Dzwo word 夷 shanqear meaning "heathen" or "barbarian", an epithet frequently applied to the original Chalyl immigrants. The name was eventually borrowed into the Öf language as an endonym for the people and eventually the country.
Upper Chalyl, or Khim peninsula, is the largest of the three mainlands constituting the country, but the least populated due to climate and Mountains. It borders Qgam.
Situated on the westernmost part of the Soltennan plateau, it is very mountainous. It continuates the Ikrem Mountains, which Chalyl accounts for nearly 80% of the area, despite this not including its highest point; while the Som Hmir Raw culminates at 4,193m in Qgam, the Dän Kuhra reaches only 3,251m in Chalyl. Nevertheless, this is not Chalyl highest peak.
Upper Chalyl also includes the Lakes Area, which includes six great ones contributing to the geographic richness of the peninsula.
It has a total of 981,853 inhabitants (as of 2015), 457,543 of which living in its largest city on the southernmost end, Ylkas, and 187,546 in the second largest one, Ofoeaf. Other important cities may include Xovran (33,876 hab.), one of the strategic hot spots in the relations with Qgam in the last centuries, and Ondër (55,543 hab.), the largest city in the subarctic area.
Lower Chalyl is the second largest mainland of Chalyl, and the second most populated. It borders Herdek.
It is the most continental area of the country, and the only one of the mainlands where the dominant industry is not fishing; that activity accounts for only 45% of the market, although no other shares more than 10% in the rest.
It is very flat, with a peak at 634m in the Zovon Mountains in the west, and another at 543m in the continuation of the Soltennan plateau, bordering Herdek.
It has a population of 3,674,381, with 885,154 habitants in the largest city, Ädit, and 769,386 in the second largest one, Oklejë.
Ovych Island is the smallest mainland, but also the most populated.
It is reasonably mountainous, with the Nuaskar Mountains reaching 1.054m in altitude.
The southernmost part of it is under a temperate oceanic climate that makes it very popular to live on. It totalizes 4,390,172 inhabitants, including 1,760,561 in the capital and largest city of the country, Färilis, 804,376 in the second largest one of the island, Nukilis (sometimes referred to as the capital's twin due to geographical proximity), and 117,054 in the third largest one Uvyt. A lot of people are also concentrated on the southern coast, renowned for its very touristic atmosphere.
