The Confederacy of The Goggles is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by Wonko the Sane with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.152 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 dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

Obesity is a thing of the past due to the nation's sickening cuisine, citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over The Goggles, the government spends millions of Triganic Pus every year prosecuting spammers, and citizens are permitted to carry concealed handguns. 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 11th in the Pacific and 212th in the world for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 27 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
