The Confederacy of The Goggles is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Wonko the Sane with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, frequent executions, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 19.845 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 tiny, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Spirituality are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare aren't 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 an astonishing 11,576 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. State-owned companies are common. Average income is a breathtaking 583,335 Triganic Pus, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,077,690 per year while the poor average 58,817, a ratio of 52.3 to 1.

College athletes are arrested for selling lemonade, the nation is experiencing a severe shortage of sporting events, the nation's student exchange programs are something of a one way street, and the government funds private schools for intellectually gifted children. 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 5,999th in the world and 1st in The New Old South for Most Stationary, with 2,076.70700424 Days.
