The Colony of 71SQN is a massive, genial nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, keen interest in outer space, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, hard-working population of 4.185 billion 71SQNians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Welfare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 57.7%.

The very strong 71SQNian economy, worth 353 trillion baht a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 84,480 baht, with the richest citizens earning 6.0 times as much as the poorest.

Insanely good theatre productions face government censorship, flatulent people are left to die of cancer at the end of hospital waiting lists, breast milk is being redistributed from each according to their ability to each according to their need, and the nation is Lazarus's leading manufacturer of intricately-patterned sweaters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 71SQN's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

71SQN is ranked 172,580th in the world and 5,027th in Lazarus for Most Primitive, scoring -81.38 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
