|Leader||King Giovanni I|
The Christmas Kingdom of Giovanniland is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by King Giovanni I with a fair hand, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, compulsory vegetarianism, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 1.738 billion Giovannilandians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Giovannistadt. The average income tax rate is 77.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Giovannilandian economy, worth 409 trillion Blue Orbs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Tourism, Information Technology, Gambling, and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 235,700 Blue Orbs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.
Royalist is the most offensive slur in the Giovannilandian language, nations across the world are quick to praise King Giovanni I's good looks and intellectual prowess, the experimental sculpture "Overtures In Dried Reindeer Dung" has been declared a national treasure, and cigarettes are dead-cheap. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Giovanniland's national animal is the Reindeer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Violetism.
