A country[1] in Southeast Asia that was extensively remodelled in the 1970s by the Khmer Rouge under the marxist loon Pol Pot. Death and unpleasantness followed in industrial quantities. His bright idea was a return to a rustic lifestyle from the middle ages would be good for the soul, moving the urban masses into the countryside actually created a delightful mix of starvation, disease and random mass murder. In an amusing irony, his downfall was engineered in part by his fellow marxist loons, the Vietnamese. An award-winning film, 'The Killing Fields', has been made about these events.[2]
