Roland Deschain and his ka-tet travel through Topeka after their adventure with Blaine the Mono. Topeka has been devastated by a "superflu", the very same one that appeared in The Stand. This Topeka is similar to the Topeka of the Keystone World, with a few differences. The baseball team is the Kansas City Monarchs, a brand of car is the Takuro Spirit, and a brand of soda is Nozz-A-La. There exists a bowling alley called "Heartland Lanes", the name of which is very similar to that of "Mid-World Lanes", as "Heartland" and "Mid-World" can be considered synonymous
