* AssInAmbassador: U.S. Ambassador Evan Conover. In order to appease Australia, he offers nothing but DisproportionateRetribution for Bart's actions -- the fact that the "public apology" option would include Bart getting his ass kicked was something he "helpfully" decided not to mention in order to make the Simpsons accept it.



* DisproportionateRetribution: A conversed trope due to InUniverse ValuesDissonance.While Bart had committed an embarrassing crime, it was minor enough that just saying he was sorry (with a hefty amount of faked sincerity) was enough... even Homer (with his strangling RunningGag) thinks that performing a LiteralAssKicking of Bart's rear with a jackboot so huge that it covers the wearer's knee is too much (and gets angry at the government officer that "helpfully" decided to not inform the Simpsons of what the Australians wanted to do, because otherwise they would not have agreed to come... and he also mentioned that the U.S. government was willing to ''toss Bart in Federal Prison'' to appease the Australians, before the apology option came up).

* {{Eagleland}}: Present and accounted for, although spoofed all the same (to give examples: Bart moons the Australians with "Don't Tread On Me" written on his butt, Homer sings about missing his country when he sees the embassy's anti-coriolis effect machine, and every machine that has "Made In The U.S.A." written on it that appears is AwesomeButImpractical).
