FatLanders sing a lot. They sing at games, concerts, beach parties, holiday gatherings, movie premiers, birthdays and weddings. And other places. They sing because many of them felt embarrassed about drawing attention to themselves on the Other Side and thus wouldn't sing. Ironic, this, because in the 19th and earlier 20th centuries, many of the great dames of opera and the stage were ladies of size and grandeur.Only when the later 20th century came around did it become necessary for female singers to appear thin and ephemeral and meager.
The FatLand Anthem was first sung at the Territorial Ceremony (official announcement of FatLand's Territorial Status, after the Land Apportionment Convention, to which FatLanders refer often as the Territorial Convention). It is mentioned, with words, in the back pages of FatLand: The Early Days.
