The Cannibalistic Wasteland of ReeK is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Kim Don Zeus with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, free-roaming dinosaurs, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 11.787 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 relatively small, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Public Transport, and Healthcare 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 9.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hori economy, worth a remarkable 2,031 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. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 172,364 Aborted Foetuses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance", a new guerrilla marketing campaign for tap water involves government agents spraying random citizens with hose water, there's no cure or sympathy for the common cold, and claiming that "my cousin said it was legal" is a common courtroom defense. 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 158,911th in the world and 5,954th in The East Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 6.38 Obesity Rate.
