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, suspicion of poets, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 26.091 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 585 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 Gambling. Average income is 22,445 pounds, with the richest citizens earning 8.9 times as much as the poorest.

Group photos of the members of parliament are often mistaken for family reunions, students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, corporations donate huge sums of money to favored politicians, and the long arm of the law possesses a rather slow hand. 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 teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Sedgistan is ranked 37th in the world and 1st in The Moon for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 120.07 Whatever.
