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 renowned for its avowedly heterosexual populace, compulsory military service, and fear of technology. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.639 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 Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lamuella. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 80.9%.

The frighteningly efficient The Gogglesian economy, worth a remarkable 4,935 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 571,259 Triganic Pus, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,639,736 per year while the poor average 36,947, a ratio of 98.5 to 1.

Phone taps are frequently carried out by the police, immigrant herding has become a national pastime, only the rich can afford the latest medical innovations, and citizens are permitted to carry concealed handguns. 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 8th in The New Old South and 146,484th in the world for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -633 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
