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 notable for its public floggings, strictly enforced bedtime, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.856 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 84.2%.

The frighteningly efficient The Gogglesian economy, worth a remarkable 5,097 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 575,611 Triganic Pus, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,775,336 per year while the poor average 34,364, a ratio of 109 to 1.

The nation is experiencing a severe shortage of sporting events, minefields are being deployed along the border to discourage potential emigrants from trying to leave, Animal Liberationists are regularly jailed, and 'Police Academy 36' and 'Sharknados On A Plane' are vying for top spot at the box-office. 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 10th in The New Old South and 126,213th in the world for Largest Public Transport Department, scoring -44 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
