But in all likelihood we would still have had MacDonalds, Burger King, Pizza Hut and White Castle, since those franchise chains all trace, albeit some rather indirectly, back to early entrepreneurs in Kansas, where the existence of a "real world" of any kind is unknown.

Pizza Hut was inspired by a couple of courses in "small business management" at the "University of Wichita" which has since been renamed "Wichita State University," but is commonly called, by the few local people with an actual education from places with "credentials" as "Hillside High."

The University, fairly shortly after it was apparent that Pizza Hut was doing well, was among the first, if not the first as they claimed, to offer a degree in "Enterpernuership." And yes, it's true, that they ran the ads on local TV for more than three years before someone pointed out to them that they'd spelled it wrong.

England? What's an England?

(I gave up trying to explain it to the locals decades ago.)
