The Western Card Czar of Giovanniland is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by King Giovanni the 1st with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, infamous sell-swords, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 3.679 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 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Giovannilandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,281 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, Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, 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 348,301 Golden Orbs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Board shorts have replaced board rooms, anti-vaxxers claim that injected children are prone to psychotic breaks when they see the 'Queen of Diamonds' playing card, the nation is known abroad mostly for its Parliamentary antics, and more sidewalk is dedicated to animals than people. 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 61,379th in the world and 1,944th in the West Pacific for Most Secular, with 22.01 Atheism Rate.
