The Confederacy of The Goggles is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Wonko the Sane with an iron fist, and remarkable for its parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.029 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 98%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

Suppression of pro-democracy protests is a daily occurrence, traffic jams are a common sight due to construction work from a massive overhaul of the nation's freeways, jails have become colloquially known as 'vampire houses', and citizens have reported seeing strange rays of light emanating from the moon. 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 114th in the Pacific and 6,734th in the world for Safest, scoring 433.599 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
