The Lavender Delegate of Giovanniland is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by King Giovanni I with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, daily referendums, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 6.3 billion Giovannilandians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

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 99.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Giovannilandian economy, worth a remarkable 3,080 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, 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 488,992 Golden Orbs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Recent events in Dàguó have been classified 'for King Giovanni I's eyes only', organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, refugees from other nations are flocking to Giovanniland's border, and the government burgles the houses of holidaying citizens. 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 1,514th in the world and 28th in the West Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 30,526.92 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
