The Cannibalistic Wasteland of ReeK is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Kim Don Zeus with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, keen interest in outer space, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 14.285 billion Cunning Horis enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Education, with Administration, Healthcare, and Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ile Du Haast. The average income tax rate is 22.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hori economy, worth a remarkable 2,906 trillion Aborted Foetuses a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 203,449 Aborted Foetuses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

One-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, Dogman-branded weapons are all the rage in the militaristic comic-book community, the government is under the thumb of countless special interests, and the nation's orphanages and maternity wards have been nicknamed 'the Killbot Factories'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. ReeK's national animal is the Retired Porn Star, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Easter Worshipophobia.

ReeK is ranked 46,692nd in the world and 1,765th in The East Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 4,285.56 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
