The Ghostly Somnabule of Rea is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Rea with a fair hand, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, daily referendums, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 7.786 billion Reans 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 minute government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, although Environment is also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Craven. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Rean economy, worth 921 trillion Krugerrands a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 118,341 Krugerrands, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 412,347 per year while the poor average 24,728, a ratio of 16.7 to 1.

Beating enemies to death with a baseball bat is legal if done within nine innings, the Messiah (formerly known as Brian) is a mayoral candidate, evenings at university debating societies often end with everyone acknowledging both sides may well be right, and the mummified remains of former kings are apparently discovered every time a tourist loses their wallet. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Rea's national animal is the Serene, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Pietist Christianity.

Rea is ranked 17,060th in the world and 1st in Arizona for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
