The Gridiron-Loving State of World Bowl is a colossal, socially progressive nation, renowned for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 5.5 billion World Bowlians 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 tiny, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Commerce, Law & Order, and Defence. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Uranium Mining, Retail, and Woodchip Exports industries.

Voting is compulsory, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, World Bowl's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, and the automotive industry soaks up huge government handouts. Crime is pervasive. World Bowl's national animal is the fan, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its currency is the sack.

World Bowl is ranked 78th in Pony Lands and 30,040th in the world for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 16 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
