Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Confederacy of The Goggles is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Wonko the Sane with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 9.202 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 juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lamuella. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 65.6%.

The frighteningly efficient The Gogglesian economy, worth a remarkable 5,004 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 543,805 Triganic Pus, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,756,105 per year while the poor average 59,521, a ratio of 46.3 to 1.

Rupert Bear is considered to be the most risqué TV programme in The Goggles, drug distribution is tightly controlled by the government, the government is a law unto itself, and the people are famous throughout the region for their bleached-white teeth. 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 9th in The New Old South and 129,899th in the world for Most Inclusive, scoring -1,262 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
