The Deer Hunters of The Sedge is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Sedge with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 21.945 billion Sedgeans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, outspoken government prioritizes Industry, with Healthcare, Welfare, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 11.5%.

The very strong Sedgean economy, worth 977 trillion Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Cheese Exports, and Book Publishing. Average income is 44,555 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Councils up and down the country wrangle over legal matters, the government is avowedly atheist, Deers are considered a delicacy, and euthanasia is legal. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. The Sedge's national animal is the Deer, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Sedge is ranked 164,893rd in the world and 51st in The Moon for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring zero on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
