The Confederacy of The Goggles is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Wonko the Sane with an iron fist, and notable for its parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.647 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lamuella. The average income tax rate is 98%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Uranium Mining and Woodchip Exports.

The only places to see Bugblatter Beasts now are at local zoos, citizens are permitted to carry concealed handguns, citizens are barcoded to keep track of their movements, and the National Archive now covers square miles of warehouses in order to accommodate its new stone tablets system. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. The Goggles's national animal is the Bugblatter Beast, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Saneism, and its currency is the Triganic Pu.

The Goggles is ranked 1st in The New Old South and 245th in the world for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 19 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
