The Cannibalistic Wasteland of ReeK is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Kim Don Zeus with a fair hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, free-roaming dinosaurs, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 11.81 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, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Public Transport, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ile Du Haast. The average income tax rate is 9.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hori economy, worth a remarkable 2,045 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 reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 173,220 Aborted Foetuses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Drawing men's naughty bits isn't considered to be art, the government's giant servers are often used as a tourist trap, schoolyard bullying has a tendency to escalate, and high school boys are required to pass vigorous self-mastery and sensitivity training to graduate. 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 17,469th in the world and 632nd in The East Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 113.29 on the Hayek Index.
