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, complete lack of prisons, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 27.02 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 628 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, Pizza Delivery, and Gambling. Average income is 23,259 pounds, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 135,075 per year while the poor average 1,897, a ratio of 71.2 to 1.

Citizens simply have to point a weapon at a government official to get what they want, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, several inches are being added to first class seating, and a shipwreck is everyone's fault but the captain's. 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 45th in the world and 1st in The Moon for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 1,156.86 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
