Sedgistan 3

Population26.412 billion


The Shifting Sands of Sedgistan 3 is a gargantuan, efficient nation, renowned for its teetotalling pirates, frequent executions, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 26.412 billion Sedgistan 3ians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Administration, Industry, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 20.2%.

The powerhouse Sedgistan 3ian economy, worth a remarkable 2,188 trillion pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Woodchip Exports, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 82,868 pounds, with the richest citizens earning 9.8 times as much as the poorest.

Supervisors in Sedgistan 3 commonly tie bells on their necks to alert employees of their presence, morale within the seismologist community has hit rock bottom, the path to inner peace is paved with state-mandated punishment, and the vow 'til death do us part' is often taken as an invitation to murder. Crime is moderate. Sedgistan 3's national animal is the wolfhound, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Sedgistan 3 is ranked 128,898th in the world and 1,000th in Artificial Solar System for Smartest Citizens, with 29.4 quips per hour.
