Cellar Doors

Population2.115 billion


AnimalGiant Eagle

The Socialist Literary Society of Cellar Doors is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Mithrandir with an even hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, ban on automobiles, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.115 billion Cellar Doorsians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Healthcare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arda. The average income tax rate is 79.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Cellar Doorsian economy, worth 151 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 quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Average income is 71,699 Tolkiens, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cellar Doorsian novella fans become unusually flustered when thinking about Mithrandir, people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, octogenarian swimsuit models insist that they've still got it, and foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle. 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 147,528th in the world and 5,476th in The East Pacific for Most Authoritarian, with 570.56 milliStalins.
