The GangLand of 7-5 is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by OG Kingpin with a fair hand, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, aversion to nipples, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 14.312 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, is solely concerned with Industry. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Thuggin' economy, worth a remarkable 3,537 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 247,200 Hollowpoints, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.

Pet loving officers arrest citizens who don't give their dogs enough biscuits, major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, crossword puzzles have been co-opted as a symbol of racial discrimination, and artists from across the nation compete to renovate the restrooms of old government buildings. 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 teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

7-5 is ranked 9,542nd in the world and 289th in The East Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 104,810.75 Standard Monetary Units.
