|Leader||King Giovanni I|
The Holy Kingdom of Giovanniland is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by King Giovanni I with a fair hand, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.395 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, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Giovannistadt. The average income tax rate is 70.4%.
The frighteningly efficient Giovannilandian economy, worth 269 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 black market in Information Technology, Tourism, 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 impressive 193,422 Golden Orbs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.
Bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of, the nation has nearly as many history museums as Giovannilandians, a cat may look at a king and a dude can look at an ass, and the nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees. Crime, especially youth-related, is 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 Violitism.
