The Oh My GOD! What were they thinking! He's a MODERATOR! of Sedgistan is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Sedge with a fair hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, free-roaming dinosaurs, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 27.065 billion Sedgistanis 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, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken individuals keep a keen eye out for any attempt to organize such a thing, and ruthlessly crush it. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rockall. Income tax is unheard of.

The large but stagnant Sedgistani economy, worth 630 trillion pounds a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Gambling, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 23,297 pounds, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 138,667 per year while the poor average 1,792, a ratio of 77.3 to 1.

The government has cut its subsidies for all special interest groups, foreign despots proudly bandstand on Sedgistani airwaves, fast-food chefs regularly win Health Innovation Awards for spitting on burgers, and government officials sit helplessly as they are labelled 'Pompous Womples' by celebrities. 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. Sedgistan's national animal is the greyhound, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Sedgistan is ranked 248,937th in the world and 72nd in The Moon for Best Weather, with -1717 meters of sunlight.
