The Matriarchy of Gypsy Lands is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by The Gypsy King with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, strictly enforced bedtime, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.733 billion Gypsies 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 tiny, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tambourine. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.3%.

The large but inefficient Gypsy economy, worth 104 trillion silver coins a year, is led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Basket Weaving, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 60,068 silver coins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 181,018 per year while the poor average 15,540, a ratio of 11.6 to 1.

Large sections of Gypsy Lands have been named national reserves to protect the native tribes living there, imprisonment is the leading cause of disownment, there has been a rapid increase of noise complaints over the sound of buzzing bees, and over a third of the seats in sports stadiums have been removed to make room for female-only commodes. Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Gypsy Lands's national animal is the Werewolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Gypsy Lands is ranked 152,838th in the world and 14th in Gypsy Lands for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -6.32 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
