The GangLand of 7-5 is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by OG Kingpin with a fair hand, and renowned for its public floggings, unlimited-speed roads, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 12.281 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, prioritizes Defense, although Industry and Education are also considered important, while Law & Order and Spirituality aren't funded at all. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Thuggin' economy, worth a remarkable 2,748 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 223,779 Hollowpoints, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 690,963 per year while the poor average 55,914, a ratio of 12.4 to 1.

Social media sites prompt users to send birthday greetings to unresponsive nonagenarians, the army's trophy cabinets have gone all-organic, new government leaflets tell coeliac children to eat more crisps, and running away is an essential part of the elite forces' hand-to-hand training. 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 2,602nd in the world and 36th in The East Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 116.6 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
