The Matriarchy of Gypsy Lands is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The Gypsy Queen with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 4.992 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 6.7%.

The Gypsy economy, worth 384 trillion silver coins a year, is led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 76,974 silver coins, with the richest citizens earning 9.6 times as much as the poorest.

International trade is a sticky issue, panicking criminals no longer flush contraband down the toilet, televangelists flaunt their expensive cars when they attend charity events, and delivery truck companies use hospital parking lots to store 16-wheelers. 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 138,302nd in the world and 21st in Gypsy Lands for Most Income Equality, scoring 10.42 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
