The Lavender Delegate of Giovanniland is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by King Giovanni I with a fair hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, free-roaming dinosaurs, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 6.01 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 Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Giovannistadt. The average income tax rate is 98.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Giovannilandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,887 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 Book Publishing. 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 480,495 Golden Orbs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The nation is wading into dangerous waters, the government has declared its commitment to multilateralism, the official Giovannilandian Phrase Book weighs as much as a small child, and populations of two-headed Hyacinth macaws have been found around recently-uncovered archaeological sites. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Giovanniland's national animal is the Hyacinth macaw, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Violetism.

Giovanniland is ranked 200,371st in the world and 6,271st in the West Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.98 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
