The Gridiron-Loving State of World Bowl is a colossal, economically powerful nation, notable for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 6.097 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 Industry, Law & Order, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.1%.
The powerhouse World Bowlian economy, worth 295 trillion sacks a year, is led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 48,545 sacks, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 470,684 per year while the poor average 241, a ratio of 1,948 to 1.
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 a serious problem. World Bowl's national animal is the fan, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.
World Bowl is ranked 148th in Pony Lands and 88,099th in the world for Most Beautiful Environments, with -7 Pounds of Wildlife less Pounds of Concrete per square mile.
