The Western Card Czar of Giovanniland is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Giovanni I with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, rampant corporate plagiarism, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 2.156 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 83.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Giovannilandian economy, worth 521 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 241,831 Blue Orbs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The amount welfare recipients spend on fertilizer has exploded, the sidewalk is used as an overtaking lane by city drivers, every spring railroad foundations erode to reveal human remains, and being King Giovanni I has been voted one of the top ten most dangerous jobs. 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 133,770th in the world and 3,654th in the West Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -2 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
