The Western Card Czar of Giovanniland is a massive, genial nation, ruled by King Giovanni I with a fair hand, and remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, pith helmet sales, and smutty television. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 3.096 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, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Giovannistadt. The average income tax rate is 91.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Giovannilandian economy, worth 953 trillion Golden 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, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Gambling. 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 307,860 Golden Orbs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The state auctions off combat drones to fund war reparations, no one is worried about government policies any more, Thomas the Spank Engine is the most popular and controversial children's show in the nation, and the nation is stuck in permanent election mode as politicians demand constant do-overs. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Giovanniland's national animal is the Elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Violetism.

Giovanniland is ranked 7,811th in the world and 188th in the West Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 5,885.86 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
