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 renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 24.367 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 is solely concerned with Education. 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 511 trillion pounds a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Pizza Delivery, and Book Publishing. Average income is 21,004 pounds, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 132,318 per year while the poor average 1,400, a ratio of 94.5 to 1.

Parents often ask to see a credit report before lending money to their own children, government officials sit helplessly as they are labelled 'Pompous Womples' by celebrities, Sedgistani TV is considered cruel and unusual punishment in other countries, and the roar of the Niagara 3000 mega-loo can be heard several blocks away. 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 11,440th in the world and 4th in The Moon for Most Extreme, scoring 46.23 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
