The Matriarchy of Gypsy Lands is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Gypsy Queen with an iron fist, and remarkable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, infamous sell-swords, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 5.046 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 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 Gypsy economy, worth 402 trillion silver coins a year, is led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 79,793 silver coins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 252,197 per year while the poor average 19,275, a ratio of 13.1 to 1.

The standard government reply to any query is "there is no spoon", boot polish is the favourite lip gloss of entry-level corporate workers, the nation is renowned abroad for its love of blood and guts, and Gypsy husbands are dead good at fathering kids. 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 14,573rd in the world and 3rd in Gypsy Lands for Most Cultured, scoring 94 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
