The Confederacy of The Goggles is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Wonko the Sane with an iron fist, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 6.2 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 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 96%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

The Goggles's newly-famous raindances to summon storms instead attract tourists from all over the Pacific, Ollie the Oiled Seal welcomes throngs of tourists to the newly opened Oil Oasis Water Park, the police are tightening their grip on alcohol smugglers, and the sound of wooden legs echo throughout The Goggles after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax. 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 8th in the Pacific and 221st in the world for Most Avoided, scoring 5,405 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
