Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Confederacy of The Goggles is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Wonko the Sane with an iron fist, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, sprawling nuclear power plants, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.21 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, 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 The Gogglesian economy, worth a remarkable 4,079 trillion Triganic Pus a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 399,578 Triganic Pus, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,284,771 per year while the poor average 33,795, a ratio of 67.6 to 1.

Scenic tours are unheard of after most environmental laws were abolished, the government spends twice as much reclaiming lost settlements from the sea as it could've on coastal defences, senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour, and the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit. 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 1st in The New Old South and 1,433rd in the world for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 9 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
