The Matriarchy of Gypsy Lands is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by The Gypsy King with an iron fist, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, compulsory military service, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 3.394 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 6.8%.

The Gypsy economy, worth 227 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 66,995 silver coins, with the richest citizens earning 8.3 times as much as the poorest.

Family bonding sessions are considered immoral and are banned, demand for night vision goggles and boat engine mufflers has spiked, exports of chewing gum are inexplicably falling, and jaywalking is punishable by public flogging. 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 121,925th in the world and 14th in Gypsy Lands for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -1.55 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
