Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Confederacy of The Goggles is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Wonko the Sane with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, keen interest in outer space, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 11.574 billion The Gogglesians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Environment and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lamuella. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient The Gogglesian economy, worth a remarkable 4,781 trillion Triganic Pus a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an amazing 413,155 Triganic Pus, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,906,212 per year while the poor average 54,128, a ratio of 35.2 to 1.

Whales in captivity live in little more than glorified goldfish bowls, colonial citizens are forced to sing the praise of the "Great The Gogglesian Liberator", truncheon-mounted cameras record the beating of criminals in dynamic HD detail, and the military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. The Goggles's national animal is the Bugblatter Beast, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Saneism.

The Goggles is ranked 79th in the world and 1st in The New Old South for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 57,957.01 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
