Cheliax is specifically racist to halflings, elves and tieflings.
Pretty much everyone is racist to orcs, goblinoids, gnolls, etc. ('monster' races, even non-evil ones like lizardfolk) but that might be more survival sense than racism, since a fair percentage of them will eat you as soon as talk to you.
Even if a specific country isn't racist to one or more core PC races, doesn't mean that you couldn't have racist individuals or regions.
If it serves the story, a Lumber Consortium influenced community in Andoran could be not just anti-fey, but anti-gnome and anti-elf, because of their connections to the fey / claims to the ancestral elven woodlands (which they want to be 'free' to pillage and exploit).
Tieflings in Cheliax are especially not accepted, and probably have it worse than halflings, as tieflings tend to be used in the worst possible forced labor, experimented on, thrown into ghettos... Cheliax likes to pretend that the contract Thrune has with Asmodeus puts humans firmly in charge, and they don't like to have evidence to the contrary, which tieflings are, just by existing. Throw in some extra crazy rhetoric, and a philosophy that worships strict hierarchies, tieflings end up at the bottom.
Such things usually aren't sane.
