|Leader||King Giovanni I|
The Western Card Czar of Giovanniland is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by King Giovanni I with a fair hand, and remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 1.944 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 Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Giovannistadt. The average income tax rate is 81.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Giovannilandian economy, worth 474 trillion Blue 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 Tourism, Information Technology, 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 amazing 243,981 Blue Orbs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.
Atheists on vacation find Violetism's scriptures make useful doorstops, marine biology students are shocked to discover that a whale is a mammal, it is not politically correct to suspect that a serially convicted burglar might steal again, and bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Giovanniland's national animal is the Reindeer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Violetism.
