The Socialist Literary Society of Cellar Doors is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Mithrandir with a fair hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.839 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, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Administration also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arda. The average income tax rate is 91.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Cellar Doorsian economy, worth 476 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 98,452 Tolkiens, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Snooze factory is now prison lingo for rehabilitation center, organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, if a tree falls in the forest and nobody is there to hear it... Cellar Doorsian satellites can detect it, and fair-weather fans talk during plays while die-hard theatre enthusiasts stay at home. Crime 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 17,721st in the world and 518th in The East Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 280.42 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
