Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Confederacy of The Goggles is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Wonko the Sane with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, otherworldly petting zoo, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 11.366 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, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. 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 4,640 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 408,277 Triganic Pus, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,074,462 per year while the poor average 44,461, a ratio of 46.7 to 1.

Traffic jams are a common sight due to construction work from a massive overhaul of the nation's freeways, the police double as repo men, mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, and citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow. 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 151,389th in the world and 4th in The New Old South for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -19.01 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
