The Wish You Were Here of Kaoss is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by The Oft Honorable Kingman Barstow IV with a fair hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.25 billion KaossiKs are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of tropiKalia. The average income tax rate is 98.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Kaossian economy, worth a remarkable 1,457 trillion KraKs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism. Average income is an impressive 176,723 KraKs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There has been a rapid increase of noise complaints over the sound of buzzing bees, the government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster, arthritic surgeons with tremulous fingers reassure patients that they are in safe hands, and official Sermon-Free Zones are set-up around the nation's hotels. Crime is totally unknown. Kaoss's national animal is the Honey Badger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is PolyNecroTheism.

Kaoss is ranked 141,196th in the world and 240th in Spiritus for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -5.9 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
