Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Confederacy of The Goggles is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Wonko the Sane with an iron fist, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, avowedly heterosexual populace, and fear of technology. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.23 billion 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, 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 Gogglesian economy, worth a remarkable 5,086 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 Retail. Average income is an amazing 415,900 Triganic Pus, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,787,394 per year while the poor average 61,844, a ratio of 28.9 to 1.

Citizens have reported seeing strange rays of light emanating from the moon, a large percentage of the poor live from cradle to grave in subterranean wage slavery, naturists are jailed regularly for indecent exposure, and tourist operators promise visitors tours of live burning shipwrecks and plane crash sites. 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 160,686th in the world and 8th in The New Old South for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 0.83 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
