The Confederacy of The Goggles is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by Wonko the Sane with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 6.948 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 led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Uranium Mining and Woodchip Exports.

Torture is commonly used to extract information from suspected criminals, prisons are crowded with possible terrorist suspects, psychological disorders are a taboo subject, and notable individuals are granted land and titles. 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 600th in the Pacific and 17,132nd in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 1.438 Stalins.
