The Traveling Tapir of Gio Farm 69 is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, free-roaming dinosaurs, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.074 billion Gio Farm 69ians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 42.6%.

The all-consuming Gio Farm 69ian economy, worth 205 trillion cards 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 a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Retail, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, 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 99,023 cards, with the richest citizens earning 6.2 times as much as the poorest.

Soiled underwear is being repurposed as (off-)white flags, the police double as repo men, glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, and citizens are being told that the greatness of a nation's power is the measure of its surrender. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gio Farm 69's national animal is the farm, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Gio Farm 69 is ranked 13,977th in the world and 36th in Giovanniland for Largest Black Market, with 51.2 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
