The Confederacy of The Goggles is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Wonko the Sane with an iron fist, and notable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 6.786 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 is mainly concerned with Defence, although Law & Order and Commerce are on the agenda. 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 led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Uranium Mining and Woodchip Exports.

Nudity is frowned upon, suppression of pro-democracy protests is a daily occurrence, university graduates and new home-owners toil in labour camps to work off their debts, and The Goggles-made cars tend to catch fire in people's driveways. 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 3,458th in the Pacific and 111,990th in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring -73 on the Enoch Index.
