Cellar Doors

Population2.751 billion


AnimalGiant Eagle

The Socialist Literary Society of Cellar Doors is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Mithrandir with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, ban on automobiles, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.751 billion Cellar Doorsians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arda. The average income tax rate is 84.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Cellar Doorsian economy, worth 214 trillion Tolkiens a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 78,144 Tolkiens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Group hugs break out during floor votes, hospitals have to sell their computers on vBay in order to afford the ransomware decryption payments, getting an autograph has become harder than ever, and boys who take just one date to the high school prom are called 'losers'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cellar Doors's national animal is the Giant Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Cellar Doors is ranked 233,055th in the world and 7,915th in The East Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -10.81 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
