The Confederacy of The Goggles is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Wonko the Sane with an iron fist, and notable for its lack of airports, complete lack of public education, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 24.206 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 Administration 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 an astonishing 15,816 trillion Triganic Pus a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is a breathtaking 653,424 Triganic Pus, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,371,470 per year while the poor average 128,228, a ratio of 18.5 to 1.

Unused plastic recycling bins are being dumped into landfills by the tonne, formerly fertile fields are being leached dry of nutrients by intensive farming, phone taps are frequently carried out by the police, and a survey of the nation's rivers and children has shown that pesticide levels are at an all-time regional high. 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 75th in the world and 1st in The New Old South for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 189,853.87 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
