S'belinde is a region of Howondaland which is briefly referenced in The Compleat Discworld Atlas. It is apparently the place where Balgrogs lived prior to an unfortunate extinction event precipitated, perhaps, by Howondaland Smith. Government is by Dark Theocracy and appears to be composed of witch-doctors and other native magic users. It is safe to say these are not affiliated to Unseen University. The b'Ware river runs through the country and is home to deadly shoals of man-eating fish; however, these have a fatal attraction to dwarf bread. Their powerful jaws make short work of it but the weight drags them down. the nearest thing to a port and capital is the settlement of Smithville, located on Snake Creek.
