The Matriarchy of Gypsy Lands is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The Gypsy King with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, ritual sacrifices, and fear of technology. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 2.651 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 6.4%.

The Gypsy economy, worth 178 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 67,452 silver coins, with the richest citizens earning 8.3 times as much as the poorest.

The Gypsy King's luxurious new home has been designated as a protected cultural heritage site, people regularly disappear off the streets and all evidence of them is destroyed, no suburban lawn is complete without barbed wire and landmines, and government ministers claim to ride dragons to work. 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 155,767th in the world and 22nd in Gypsy Lands for Healthiest Citizens, with 0.51 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
