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 smutty television, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 29.297 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 736 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, Gambling, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 25,149 pounds, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 168,922 per year while the poor average 1,401, a ratio of 120 to 1.

Newly synthesized elements' half-lives are a million times shorter than the time it takes to say their names, drivers regularly pull over for nonexistent police cars, hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have, and the "give and take" of international diplomacy often happens at gunpoint. 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 11,901st in the world and 5th in The Moon for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 364 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
