For me it smells like homework. So I provide one partial way to do it - how to print rectangle, but without center.

def do_rectangle(height=5, width=7, characters='GIS'):
    inner_width = len(characters) * (width - 2) + width - 1
    for i in range(height):
        if i in (0, height-1):
            print(' '.join(characters for i in range(width)))
        else:
            print(f'{characters}{" "*inner_width}{characters}')

do_rectangle()        
do_rectangle(height=5, width=5, characters='*')
Output:
GIS GIS GIS GIS GIS GIS GIS GIS GIS GIS GIS GIS GIS GIS GIS GIS GIS GIS GIS GIS * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
It's matter of defensiveness how to deal with negative width.

The poster has stated multiple times the backslashes are supposed to be spaces, and that backslashes are only there because spaces get collapsed in the post.
