Super Bowl 27

The Republic of Super Bowl 27 is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its triple-decker prams, infamous sell-swords, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 3.307 billion Super Bowl 27ians 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 77.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Super Bowl 27ian economy, worth 503 trillion pounds 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 black market in Furniture Restoration, Woodchip Exports, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. 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 152,326 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Foreign policy often involves bullwhips and leather, birth announcements often also serve as death announcements, Air Super Bowl 27 is rumored to receive more government funding than the Super Bowl 27ian Air Force, and the nation's police officers are famously miserable-looking. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Super Bowl 27's national animal is the lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Super Bowl 27 is ranked 72,368th in the world and 2,565th in the South Pacific for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 2,749.11 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
