The Empire of The Jovannic is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Jov II with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 7.787 billion Jovannicans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jovannica. The average income tax rate is 84.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Jovannician economy, worth a remarkable 1,030 trillion Jovs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 132,306 Jovs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government seizes private property for the 'good of the people', the number of judges has tripled in recent months, distant and obscure male relatives succeed to the Jovannician throne, and sharks are enjoying their deliveries of canned food. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Jovannic's national animal is the Zebra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Tolerance.

The Jovannic is ranked 289,790th in the world and 11,780th in Osiris for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -22 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
