The Democratic Republic of Kek- is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ubiquitous missile silos, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 1.988 billion Kek-ians 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 tiny government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Kek-ian economy, worth 298 trillion Pepes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 150,397 Pepes, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 576,043 per year while the poor average 27,103, a ratio of 21.3 to 1.

Vile black smog from coal power plants has enveloped several major urban centres, just as students finish their homework it's time for school, the police insist that racism does not exist, and directors of low-budget sci-fi films are flocking to use Kek- City as a backdrop. Crime is totally unknown. Kek-'s national animal is the Pepe, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Kek- is ranked 76,177th in the world and 3,524th in The North Pacific for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 609.51 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
