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 remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, sprawling nuclear power plants, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 28.52 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 702 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 24,617 pounds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 74,745 per year while the poor average 6,300, a ratio of 11.9 to 1.

Getting an infected tattoo is considered a rite of passage in Sedgistan, all streets are privately owned toll roads, political speeches that drill deep into bureaucratic fine detail could be said to be a little boring, and in its new More is More campaign the government advertises obese men and women posing coquettishly with baked goods to spare their blushes. 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 273,521st in the world and 23rd in The Moon for Most Efficient Economies, scoring -1.94 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
