The Confederacy of The Goggles is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Wonko the Sane with an iron fist, and notable for its flagrant waste-dumping, prohibition of alcohol, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 17.379 billion Gogglesians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The minute, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Spirituality are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lamuella. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Gogglesian economy, worth a remarkable 9,160 trillion Triganic Pus a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is a breathtaking 527,077 Triganic Pus, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Oddly simian-looking religious thugs beat up anyone who suggests humans are related to monkeys, young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables, Gogglesians caught jaywalking often have their houses seized by the police, and even the nation's brussel sprouts are delicious and nutritious. 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 170,291st in the world and 5th in The New Old South for Most Secular, with 0.21 Atheism Rate.
