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 multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, sprawling nuclear power plants, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 24.394 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 is solely concerned with Education. 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 512 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 Book Publishing. Average income is 20,998 pounds, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 137,995 per year while the poor average 1,246, a ratio of 110 to 1.

There's never a spare chair in the retirement home, the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Rockall Times is sold out, eminent domain has been abolished, and the price of freedom is about half a million pounds. 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 191,721st in the world and 61st in The Moon for Least Corrupt Governments, with 79.41 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
