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, avowedly heterosexual populace, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 21.257 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 12,903 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 reasonably common. Average income is a breathtaking 607,003 Triganic Pus, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,378,412 per year while the poor average 54,559, a ratio of 61.9 to 1.

Government ministers claim to ride dragons to work, prison reforms have replaced communal luaus with communal loos, new safety regulations require all cars manufactured in The Goggles to be bombproof, and ethnic minorities are often refused admission to some of the nation's best schools. 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 241,113th in the world and 2nd in The New Old South for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring -27.93 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
