The market for professional sports in Prybourne is roughly $7 Billion Pente, significantly lower than most Esquarium nations. Baseball has been regarded as the national sport since the late 19th century, while Prybournean football is now by several measures the most popular spectator sport. Basketball and Hockey are the country's next two leading professional team sports. These four major sports, when played professionally, each occupy a season at different, but overlapping, times of the year. College football and basketball attract large audiences. Boxing and horse racing were once the most watched individual sports, but they have been eclipsed by golf and auto racing, particularly ROCAR. In the 21st century, televised mixed martial arts has also gained a strong following of regular viewers. While soccer is much less popular in URW than in many other nations in Esquarium, it is played widely at the youth and amateur levels; even so, the men's teams plan on being in the next Esquarium Coup and the women are #1 in the women's continental rankings. Tennis and many outdoor sports are popular as well.
Canterian colonization of Prybourne yielded the introduction of a number of ingredients and cooking styles to the latter. The various styles continued expanding well into the 19th and 20th centuries, proportional to the influx of immigrants from many foreign nations; such influx developed a rich diversity in food preparation throughout the country.
Arts and Literature
Visual art of Prybourne art encompasses the history of painting and visual art in Prybourne. In the late 18th and early 19th centuries, artists primarily painted landscapes and portraits in a realistic style based mainly on Western painting and Hellandia arts. A parallel development taking shape in rural Prybourne was the Prybournean craft movement, which began as a reaction to the Canter civil war.
During its early history, Prybourne was a series of Canter Republic colonies on the eastern coast of the present-day Terran Cohort. Therefore, its literary tradition begins as linked to the broader tradition of Canter literature. However, unique Prybournean characteristics and the breadth of its production usually now cause it to be considered a separate path and tradition.
