The Kingdom of Doormanster is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Doorman with an iron fist, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, flagrant waste-dumping, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 11 billion Doormansterians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Doormanster Door Factory. The average income tax rate is 68.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Doormansterian economy, worth a remarkable 1,929 trillion Doors a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Retail, Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 175,386 Doors, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Hammering a nail into a wall is an effective death sentence, a vast monorail network carries people all over the country, the nation tends not to learn from its history, and former royals stand on the street corner with signs reading "will cut ribbons for money". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Doormanster's national animal is the Doormouse, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Door Worship.

Doormanster is ranked 208,549th in the world and 10th in Norrland for Least Corrupt Governments, with 0.99 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
