The Western Card Czar of Giovanniland is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by King Giovanni I with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, deadly medical pandemics, and daily referendums. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 3.357 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, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Giovannistadt. The average income tax rate is 93.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Giovannilandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,131 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, Arms Manufacturing, and Gambling. 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 337,076 Golden Orbs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Racial and religious segregation has become rife as the various groups are loath to mingle, college students make ends meet by selling their kidneys, children gain their first sex education from reading the dictionary, and cheese has become the new icon of political dissent. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-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 Violetism.

Giovanniland is ranked 6,976th in the world and 83rd in the West Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 3,894.33 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
