Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Confederacy of The Goggles is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Wonko the Sane with an iron fist, and notable for its ritual sacrifices, enslaved workforce, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.11 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 relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order and Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lamuella. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 87.9%.

The frighteningly efficient The Gogglesian economy, worth a remarkable 4,592 trillion Triganic Pus a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is a breathtaking 566,244 Triganic Pus, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,177,110 per year while the poor average 101,416, a ratio of 21.5 to 1.

Lamuella is a police state during international summits, citizens must pay to enjoy The Goggles's pristine beaches, scenic tours are unheard of after most environmental laws were abolished, and Bugblatter Beast racing stadiums are open 24/7. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. 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 1st in The New Old South and 293rd in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 30 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
