The Flawed Socialist Republic of Cellar Doors is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by James Buffett with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, ban on automobiles, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 1.435 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, although Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. 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 53.1 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 221,218th in the world and 8,859th in The East Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -15.49 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
