The Deer Hunters of The Sedge is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Sedge with a fair hand, and renowned for its irreverence towards religion, complete lack of public education, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 22.652 billion Sedgeans are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The minute, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.2%.

The all-consuming Sedgean economy, worth a remarkable 1,683 trillion Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Woodchip Exports, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 74,333 Dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 376,736 per year while the poor average 8,136, a ratio of 46.3 to 1.

Census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, a PhD just ain't what it used to be, imprisonment is the leading cause of disownment, and whales in captivity live in little more than glorified goldfish bowls. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Sedge's national animal is the Deer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Sedge is ranked 210,305th in the world and 119th in Founderless for Most Authoritarian, with 161.48 milliStalins.
