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 barren, inhospitable landscape, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 25.015 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 531 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 21,254 pounds, with the richest citizens earning 9.3 times as much as the poorest.

Town welcome signs list corporate sponsors, crowded passenger trains are near-silent save for the soft tap of fingers on touchscreens, crime is on the rise as DNA sampling has been all but outlawed, and piracy is the nation's most popular pastime. 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 152nd in the world and 1st in The Moon for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 1,021.96 on the Hayek Index.
