* {{Expy}}: At the beginning of the series, before CharacterDevelopment set in, the main cast were clearly based on characters from ''Series/TheOfficeUS'', though this was phased out across season 2, with most of the main cast finding their own style and the incredibly blatant Jim stand-in Mark getting written out entirely in favor of the much more original Ben. Basically, it can be summed up as:
** Leslie is [[StupidBoss Michael Scott]].
** Ann is Pam Beasly.
** Ron is Dwight Schrute.

** A lot of the drama in the first part of Season 7 revolves around the fact that the National Park Service can only drum up about $3 million to buy the plot of land Jessica Wicks Newport is selling. In reality, tax law would be a major consideration that would vastly increase Leslie's firepower. If the land were donated to the Parks Service, the IRS could offer her a deduction on her federal income tax of up to the full fair market value of the land (presumably, $90 million). The value of a $90 million deduction to Mrs. Newport is variable, depending on how high her income is and whether she receives it as salary from the Sweetums Foundation (in which case her income tax rate is probably the maximal 39.6%) or as income from investments (in which case she is likely taxed at the capital gains rate of 20%).[[note]]It's actually ''much'' more complicated than that, because depending on what her annual income is, the sale could completely wipe out her adjusted gross income, leading to a complicated Alternative Minimum Tax analysis.[[/note]] Also factoring in is the fact that if she sold it to a private party (like Gryzzl), she would have to pay income tax on it, and the amount would depend on whether she inherited the land when her husband died or if he transferred it to her during his lifetime, the value of the land when she recieved it, and whether her husband died before or after the recent Pawnee property boom; depending, she could end up paying millions or even tens of millions in taxes on the sale (or spending lower but still-astronomical sums paying tax lawyers to reduce it). Of course, an extensive discourse on tax law [[RuleOfFunny is not funny]] and having the Parks Service relatively evenly matched with the private sector [[RuleOfDrama isn't dramatic]], so naturally this doesn't come up.
