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 remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, sprawling nuclear power plants, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.411 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 91.9%.

The frighteningly efficient The Gogglesian economy, worth a remarkable 4,926 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 585,743 Triganic Pus, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,185,875 per year while the poor average 55,368, a ratio of 57.5 to 1.

The nation's drinking water tends to glow green at night, political activists are routinely executed, torture is commonly used to extract information from suspected criminals, and the government strictly regulates whale harvest quotas. 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 2nd in The New Old South and 5,024th in the world for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, scoring 182 on the Inverse Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
