Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Confederacy of The Goggles is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Wonko the Sane with an iron fist, and renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, otherworldly petting zoo, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.842 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.

The minute, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Environment and Welfare not funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lamuella. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient The Gogglesian economy, worth a remarkable 4,261 trillion Triganic Pus a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an amazing 393,016 Triganic Pus, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,059,490 per year while the poor average 40,192, a ratio of 51.2 to 1.

The dead are minced up and sold to people in burger form, military geniuses responsible for brilliant campaigns are drummed out because they have close same-sex friends and an interest in interior design, it is a crime to operate a combine harvester while intoxicated, and the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. The Goggles's national animal is the Bugblatter Beast, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Saneism.

The Goggles is ranked 179,222nd in the world and 5th in The New Old South for Least Corrupt Governments, with 0.83 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
