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 sprawling nuclear power plants, free-roaming dinosaurs, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 31.834 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 844 trillion pounds 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, Gambling, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 26,522 pounds, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 148,857 per year while the poor average 2,339, a ratio of 63.6 to 1.

No cul-de-sac or trailer park is complete without a gambling parlor, economists claim no news is good news, computer users are buried daily in thousands of unsolicited emails, and the government is dead set on letting people rest in peace. 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 157,092nd in the world and 13th in The Moon for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 929.56 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
