The Dominion of Giovanniland III is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, avant-garde cinema, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.92 billion Giovannilandians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Administration, Industry, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while International Aid and Welfare aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 19.8%.

The powerhouse Giovannilandians economy, worth 141 trillion Golden Orbs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 73,777 Golden Orbs, with the richest citizens earning 8.9 times as much as the poorest.

Every politician claims to be at least 1% Native Giovannilandians, the government advises foreign diplomats to speak softly and carry a big bag of cash, Leader's peyote-induced "let's all just be friends" speech is trending world-wide, and the ban on cars has been repealed. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low. Giovanniland III's national animal is the Elephant, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Giovanniland III is ranked 76,763rd in the world and 3rd in CRAB for Most Corrupt Governments, with 10.42 kickbacks per hour.
