The Gridiron-Loving State of World Bowl is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its absence of drug laws, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 16.13 billion Football Fans 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 7.6%.

The powerhouse Football Lover economy, worth 789 trillion sacks a year, is led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Retail, Woodchip Exports, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 48,918 sacks, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 474,298 per year while the poor average 243, 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 51,663rd in the world and 2,632nd in Balder for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 3,925.21 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
