The Matriarchy of Gypsy Lands is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The Gypsy Queen with an iron fist, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, public floggings, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 10.709 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 6.8%.

The strong Gypsy economy, worth 870 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 81,283 silver coins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 247,550 per year while the poor average 20,714, a ratio of 12.0 to 1.

Alcoholics are lauded as national benefactors within the halls of the Ministry of Finance, you can bet your bottom dollar that gambling will cost you an arm and a leg, cigarettes are dead-cheap, and unruly families are deliberately marooned on desert islands. 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 frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Gypsy Lands is ranked 54,812th in the world and 12th in Gypsy Lands for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero valid endorsements.
