The Blessed Forests of Kyssers is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Therapist with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, smutty television, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.241 billion downers love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kyssers City. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient dismal economy, worth a remarkable 1,027 trillion Milligrams of Magnesium a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 164,625 Milligrams of Magnesium, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Religious households enthusiastically use whips in private, stuttering trypanophobes are doomed never to marry, student athletes gaze forlornly at abandoned lemmingball fields, and decongestants have replaced Milligrams of Magnesium in street transactions. Crime is totally unknown. Kyssers's national animal is the lemming, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Reneism.

Kyssers is ranked 206,250th in the world and 7,732nd in Osiris for Most Avoided, scoring 0.26 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
