The Confederacy of The Goggles is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Wonko the Sane with an iron fist, and remarkable for its vat-grown people, enslaved workforce, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 20.047 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, with Law & Order, Industry, and Spirituality also on the agenda, 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 an astonishing 11,933 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 595,258 Triganic Pus, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,045,691 per year while the poor average 127,014, a ratio of 16.1 to 1.

Funding for education has been redirected into the military, it is a silent spring in The Goggles, bread-gangs raid restaurant waste bins to stockpile uneaten rolls, and anti-vaxxers claim that injected children are prone to psychotic breaks when they see the 'Queen of Diamonds' playing card. 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 111th in the world and 1st in The New Old South for Fattest Citizens, with 97.45 Obesity Rate.
