The Matriarchy of Gypsy Lands is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Gypsy King with an iron fist, and remarkable for its fear of technology, strictly enforced bedtime, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.187 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 Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tambourine. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.0%.

The Gypsy economy, worth 78.3 trillion silver coins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Basket Weaving, and Pizza Delivery. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 65,983 silver coins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 209,872 per year while the poor average 15,793, a ratio of 13.3 to 1.

Ethnic minorities are often refused admission to some of the nation's best schools, mining safety laws are often more expensive than what's being mined, the constant playing of Merry Birthday on Gypsy radio has led to calls for the song to be classified as a crime against humanity, and concussed Werewolfball players cannot remember their lineup position. 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 154,437th in the world and 12th in Gypsy Lands for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 15.29 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
