The Confederacy of The Goggles is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Wonko the Sane with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.532 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 99%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Uranium Mining and Woodchip Exports.

Several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, The Goggles Barrier Island residents anxiously await their 'Bridge to Somewhere', citizens rise at daybreak every day for mandatory exercise, and daisy chain gangs plant flowers and pick up litter. 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 298th in the world for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 19 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
