Can you list the top facts and stats about Superdeterminism?

In quantum mechanics, **superdeterminism** is a loophole in Bell's theorem. By postulating that all systems being measured are correlated with the choices of which measurements to make on them, the assumptions of the theorem are no longer fulfilled. A hidden variables theory which is superdeterministic can thus fulfill Bell's notion of local causality and still violate the inequalities derived from Bell's theorem.^{[1]} This makes it possible to construct a local hidden-variable theory that reproduces the predictions of quantum mechanics, for which a few toy models have been proposed.^{[2]}^{[3]}^{[4]} In addition to being deterministic, superdeterministic models also postulate correlations between the state that is measured and the measurement setting.
