The Matriarchy of Gypsy Lands is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The Gypsy King with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, strictly enforced bedtime, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 2.242 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 6.5%.

The Gypsy economy, worth 147 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 65,896 silver coins, with the richest citizens earning 8.3 times as much as the poorest.

A recent political speech drew the ire of nerds everywhere after the speaker claimed that Darth Vader was Harry Potter's father, grumbling early morning commuters bemoan having to travel to work in the dark, the government only announces the deaths of its members when it's convenient, and collisions between bicycles and carnival floats are on the rise. Crime is a 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 119,893rd in the world and 14th in Gypsy Lands for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 665.17 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
