The GangLand of 7-5 is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by OG Kingpin with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 13.804 billion Thugs live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Thuggin' economy, worth a remarkable 3,381 trillion Hollowpoints a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 244,937 Hollowpoints, with the richest citizens earning 9.4 times as much as the poorest.

The doctor has cold hands, all recreational drugs are legal, corporate 'hostile takeovers' now involve ICBMs and main battle tanks, and cutting-edge missile systems are being retrofitted to twin-prop air force biplanes. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. 7-5's national animal is the Gat, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

7-5 is ranked 20,430th in the world and 685th in The East Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 36.34 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
