Cellar Doors

Population1.421 billion

LeaderJames Buffett


The Flawed Socialist Republic of Cellar Doors is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by James Buffett with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory vegetarianism, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 1.421 billion Cellar Doorsians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Margaritaville. The average income tax rate is 76.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Cellar Doorsian economy, worth 52.6 trillion Shillings a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 36,996 Shillings, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's generous tax credits have brought all the film studios to the yard, the weather report is the prisoners' favourite programme, power stations shutting down at night has made bedtime reading tricky, and kids are taught in schools to argue with their parents. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cellar Doors's national animal is the Parrot, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Cellar Doors is ranked 219,492nd in the world and 8,904th in The East Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -17.83 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
