The Kingdom of Giolmia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by King Ioannes II of La Marca-Infante with a fair hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, zero percent divorce rate, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 2.392 billion Giolmians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Foj'e. The average income tax rate is 50.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Giolmian economy, worth 275 trillion Giolmian Crowns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 115,326 Giolmian Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Colonists who were promised new lands find only war-torn devastation, many aides in King Ioannes II of La Marca-Infante's office are known to be serial jaywalkers, citizens cannot change their light bulbs without approval from an international committee, and kindergartners' favourite dance move is the stop-drop-and-roll. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Giolmia's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Giolmia is ranked 2,629th in the world and 406th in the South Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 88 valid endorsements.
