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 notable for its unlimited-speed roads, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 28.973 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 720 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 24,871 pounds, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 171,181 per year while the poor average 1,286, a ratio of 133 to 1.

The government's suicide hotline now redirects callers to local tax lawyers, Sedgistan's market has been colonised by the corporations of rich countries, crossword puzzles have been co-opted as a symbol of racial discrimination, and the most common answers to where babies come from are "uh... ask your mother" and "um... ask your father". 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 11,061st in the world and 4th in The Moon for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 376.33 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
