Considering words with possible relevance to the title, I think the word might be:

SWEDISH - a word relating to a European country.

One anagram

Swished

Two Meanings

(i) Being from Sweden; (ii) The language spoken in Sweden.

Three primary directions

Among its letters SWEDISH contains the compass points S (twice), W and E.

Four numbers

Among its letters SWEDISH contains e (Euler's number), and the Roman numerals D (500), I (1) and DI (501).

Five consonants (not necessarily distinct)

SWeDiSH (5 consonants)

Six different multi-letter words- at least (formed by consecutive letters)

The dictionary words WE, WED, DIS, DISH, IS and SH (an interjection) can be found spelled out consecutively in the letters of SWEDISH.

Seven letters

SWEDISH is a seven-letter word!

  • $\begingroup$ Nice effort. I don't mean to be the party pooper (sorry!), but ENGILDS is also an anagram of this word and can be found in MW... I bet you're on the right track with your interpretation of 'numbers' here though. Also, is there a significance of the title to this answer? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @hexomino Could it be "SHINGLE"? It shares most of SINGLED properties and ties with the title via anagram $\endgroup$ Jul 7, 2021 at 13:48
