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 daily referendums, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 23.561 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 enormous but sluggish Sedgistani economy, worth a remarkable 2,790 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 an impressive 118,437 pounds, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 690,199 per year while the poor average 9,585, a ratio of 72.0 to 1.

Grannies get pulled over for knitting pullovers while driving, you can bet your bottom dollar that gambling will cost you an arm and a leg, small towns have started burning historical buildings in hopes of attracting tourists, and schoolyard sandboxes resemble ashtrays due to the large number of cigarette butts. 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 64th in the world and 1st in The Moon for Most Armed, with 74.49 Weapons Per Person.
