The Confederacy of The Goggles is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by Wonko the Sane with an iron fist, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 6.235 billion 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 concentrates mainly on 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 97%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

The importance of winning Olympic gold medals is indoctrinated from an early age, tourists flock from around the world to see The Goggles's famed 'rainbow slums', citizens have reported seeing strange rays of light emanating from the moon, and the populace harbors a fierce hatred of the metric system. 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 10th in the Pacific and 267th in the world for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring 21 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
