The Borderlands of Gypsy Watchmakers is a gargantuan, safe nation, notable for its compulsory military service, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 29.96 billion Gypsy Watchmakersians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 67.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Gypsy Watchmakersian economy, worth 911 trillion rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 30,429 rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Voting is voluntary. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gypsy Watchmakers's national animal is the rabbit.

Gypsy Watchmakers is ranked 180,026th in the world and 47th in Florida for Most Developed, scoring 51.65 on the Human Development Index.
