The Democratic Republic of Kek- is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, barren, inhospitable landscape, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 1.402 billion Kek-ians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Kek-ian economy, worth 196 trillion Pepes a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 140,422 Pepes, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 667,840 per year while the poor average 17,387, a ratio of 38.4 to 1.

The police force is on a recruitment drive, radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, there has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates, and large areas of Kek- are not accessible by the public. Crime is well under control. Kek-'s national animal is the Pepe, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Kek- is ranked 17,784th in the world and 767th in The North Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 6,625.82 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
