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 museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and daily referendums. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 3.632 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 Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Giovannistadt. The average income tax rate is 95.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Giovannilandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,254 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 345,278 Golden Orbs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Biological warfare is used to solve small disagreements, a degree in King Giovanni The 1st Science with a Minor in Awesomeology starts many political careers, it is common to see Maxémon Trainer listed on Giovannilandian resumés, and the government is flooded with compensation requests. 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 28,568th in the world and 546th in the West Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 34.16 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
