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 irreverence towards religion, complete lack of public education, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 28.76 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 710 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 24,693 pounds, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 140,716 per year while the poor average 2,104, a ratio of 66.9 to 1.

Fifty years of pension funds can disappear in half a second, nervous homeowners have been blamed for rising death rates amongst carol singers and locksmiths, agricultural employees work for peanuts, and employees are told they can avoid traffic jams by starting work at 4 AM. 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 128,580th in the world and 11th in The Moon for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 872.2 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
