Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Confederacy of The Goggles is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Wonko the Sane with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, sprawling nuclear power plants, and fear of technology. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.271 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 relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lamuella. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 91.3%.

The frighteningly efficient The Gogglesian economy, worth a remarkable 4,817 trillion Triganic Pus a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is a breathtaking 582,488 Triganic Pus, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,886,554 per year while the poor average 66,652, a ratio of 43.3 to 1.

Most of the nation's wealthy aristocrats are dentists, the workforce is almost entirely made up of slave labour, the nation is experiencing a severe shortage of sporting events, and hairdressers are among those who have disappeared overnight. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. 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 1st in The New Old South and 1,542nd in the world for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 9 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
