* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: President Chet Roosevelt is a parody of California governor and presidential hopeful UsefulNotes/JerryBrown. Regarding his last name, the intended joke is that he, in fact, has nothing in common with either UsefulNotes/TheodoreRoosevelt or UsefulNotes/FranklinDRoosevelt, something which is {{Lampshaded}} by the narrator.

It is the year 1998. America is broke. They ran out of fuel and now everyone is living in their non-running cars and traveling by foot, skate, or bike. The president had to resort to selling the White House and moving into a sublet condo named the Western White House. Not only that, but America is on the verge of ''foreclosure'' unless the country can raise 400 billion dollars in 30 days. Their solution? To have a non-stop telethon -- or an Americathon -- but those who would rather see the U.S.A. fall will stop at nothing to sabotage it.

* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: So very 1970s. The film basically takes place in a world where TheSeventies never ended, both in terms of the culture and in terms of the energy crisis. (Well okay, maybe they were right about the energy crisis part.)
