The Confederacy of The Goggles is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Wonko the Sane with an iron fist, and renowned for its parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 6.808 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 is mainly concerned with Defence, although Law & Order and Commerce are secondary priorities. 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.

Nobody ever seems to enter or leave the armour-plated flying castle that serves as The Goggles's House of Parliament, thousands of former welfare recipients are in a revolutionary uproar as the rest of society is enjoying a hefty tax break, the police are tightening their grip on alcohol smugglers, and citizens who become homeless are immediately executed. 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 512th in the Pacific and 13,743rd in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 1.712 Stalins.
