Doormat to the Lord

Population11.975 billion

CapitalDoormat to the Lord City


The United Kingdom of Doormat to the Lord is a gargantuan, cultured nation, remarkable for its public floggings, unlimited-speed roads, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 11.975 billion Congregation have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Doormat to the Lord City. The average income tax rate is 68.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Saved economy, worth 931 trillion Kronor 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 77,827 Kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Leader has just been declared ruler of Doormat to the Lord in an international press conference, open-heart surgery is taught in seminaries, fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, and Leader's exquisite office door is replaced monthly due to angry petitioners. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Doormat to the Lord's national animal is the Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Doormat to the Lord is ranked 184,621st in the world and 46th in Scandinavia for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -3.74 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
