The Empire of Giovenith is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Queen Antoinette M D'Nellee with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic population of 18.363 billion Giovenithians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jensinhai. The average income tax rate is 83.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Giovenithian economy, worth a remarkable 1,720 trillion Pierela'tes a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 93,687 Pierela'tes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People can't decide between preserving forests and buying print copies of 'Dogman Versus The Giggler', the government regularly publishes lengthy reports on its own excessive recordkeeping, urban graffiti is hand-calligraphed in perfectly kerned elegant fonts, and park rangers struggle to deal with a rash of stolen pic-a-nic baskets. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Giovenith's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Giovenith is ranked 170,931st in the world and 7,292nd in The East Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -7.07 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
