The Confederacy of The Goggles is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by Wonko the Sane with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.32 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 99%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Uranium Mining and Woodchip Exports.

Strange lights seen in the sky are officially regarded as weather balloons or hoaxes and nothing else, all citizens are solely referenced by their allocated identity number, skateboarding is punishable by heavy fines, and fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits. 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 99th in the Pacific and 12,001st in the world for Largest Populations, with 7,320 Capita (millions).
