Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Confederacy of The Goggles is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Wonko the Sane with an iron fist, and renowned for its triple-decker prams, suspicion of poets, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 11.163 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 4,468 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 400,322 Triganic Pus, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,250,554 per year while the poor average 35,185, a ratio of 64.0 to 1.

Torture is commonly used to extract information from suspected criminals, Lamuella is a police state during international summits, the The Gogglesian Tourism Bureau has described the abolition of coastal defences as a "kick to the groyne", and the importance of winning Olympic gold medals is indoctrinated from an early age. 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 76,451st in the world and 2nd in The New Old South for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 1,048.34 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
