Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Confederacy of The Goggles is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Wonko the Sane with an iron fist, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, public floggings, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 11.995 billion 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 Environment and Welfare not funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lamuella. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Gogglesian economy, worth a remarkable 4,999 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 416,763 Triganic Pus, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,871,241 per year while the poor average 57,365, a ratio of 32.6 to 1.

Freighter lifeboats have been replaced by state of the art marker buoys so divers can recover the cargo after they sink, golden statues of Bugblatter Beasts line the memorial avenues of the Funerary District, policemen regularly conduct midnight raids on closed donut shops to 'collect evidence', and Wonko the Sane's luxurious new home has been designated as a protected cultural heritage site. 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 59th in the world and 1st in The New Old South for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 1,002.29 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
