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 renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, prohibition of alcohol, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 9.035 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 86.7%.

The frighteningly efficient The Gogglesian economy, worth a remarkable 5,358 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 593,127 Triganic Pus, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,306,688 per year while the poor average 53,115, a ratio of 62.3 to 1.

Invasive species are hunted by the gendarmerie, vaccinations are mandatory, the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, and the Bugblatter Beast is reportedly extinct. 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 118,942nd in the world for Best Weather, with -1,674 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
