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 otherworldly petting zoo, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 28.456 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 698 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 24,547 pounds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 75,332 per year while the poor average 6,187, a ratio of 12.2 to 1.

Bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms, the "boy who cried wolf" policy makes sick people reluctant to call an ambulance, the sidewalk is used as an overtaking lane by city drivers, and nature magazines featuring stick insects on their covers are sometimes mistaken for fashion magazines. 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 16th in the world and 1st in The Moon for Highest Crime Rates, with 309.48 crimes per hour.
