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 public floggings, anti-smoking policies, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 11.024 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 tiny, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lamuella. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient The Gogglesian economy, worth a remarkable 4,354 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 395,040 Triganic Pus, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,239,679 per year while the poor average 34,066, a ratio of 65.7 to 1.

University graduates and new home-owners toil in labour camps to work off their debts, concussed Bugblatter Beastball players cannot remember their lineup position, Animal Liberationists are regularly jailed, and young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables. 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 150,284th in the world and 5th in The New Old South for Smartest Citizens, with 0.17 Quips Per Hour.
