Super Bowl 46

The Republic of Super Bowl 46 is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its ritual sacrifices, lack of airports, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.304 billion Super Bowl 46ians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 62.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Super Bowl 46ian economy, worth 521 trillion francs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, Uranium Mining, and Soda Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 157,759 francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Propaganda and Partisanship 101 is a required class all political candidates must pass before being nominated by their chosen party, power to the people comes from the barrel of a gun, only the wealthy vote, and banned objects are regularly legalized if they've been successfully stolen from the government. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Super Bowl 46's national animal is the panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Super Bowl 46 is ranked 38,050th in the world and 1,154th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 4,977.17 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
