The First of 70 is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, complete lack of prisons, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 16.597 billion 70ians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient 70ian economy, worth a remarkable 2,593 trillion Golds a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 156,242 Golds, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,445,554 per year while the poor average 1,634, a ratio of 884 to 1.

Frequent broken zippers have resulted in safety pins making a fashion comeback, the government has completely eliminated all childcare programs, citizens are remarkably well involved in the political process, and multiple births are a cause of celebration for tax collectors. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. 70's national animal is the Elephant, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

70 is ranked 239,579th in the world and 1st in A Place for Numbers for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring -39.5 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
