The Confederacy of The Goggles is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by Wonko the Sane with an iron fist, and remarkable for its absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.192 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.

Funding for education has been redirected into the military, it is illegal to make racist remarks in public, citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow, and Animal Liberationists are regularly jailed. 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 4,013th in the Pacific and 114,161st in the world for Most Godforsaken, with -501 Dawkins.
