In 2068, before a nuclear war starts, a company backed by the federal government decides to build a bunch of shelters to protect some of the population from the coming apocalypse.
My question is how much would it cost to build all these shelters.
To start with, each shelter is built three feet underground with reinforced concrete and is powered by a thorium reactor which is maintained by the inhabitants.
The shelters are all very big, about 75,000 square feet of room. There are about a thousand rooms big enough to house 6 people comfortably. Each room contains 4 beds and some extra closet space.
All the people share 15 large public washrooms that all the inhabitants share together. There are 6 large cafeterias connected to the greenhouses the grow all the food.
They keep livestock like sheep, cattle, chickens pigs, and some horses. They have a large vault of cryogenically frozen seeds to plant after they get out.
They also have a large armory with enough weapons like laser rifles, body armor, and energy grenades to supply an army of 1,000 people. And to train people, they have simulations of the outside world to prepare them.
There are hospitals with all the latest gear to treat people if illnesses, and a vast storage facility to keep everything they’ll need to survive. They have water purification machines, water tablets, and life straws.
Also, they keep lots of power tools like drills and chainsaws and weaving looms. To help grow the population each couple is expected to have at least 3 kids. When they reach the age of four, they are taken to a development center where they are taught reading, writing, history, science, and mathematics. They are there four 12 years until they graduate.
There is a library containing nearly every book in digital storage. There is also a fairly large hospital and a radio for communicating with others.
The shelter also provides clothing of blacks turtlenecks, black pants, and grey hiking boots for men and light green skirts and gold sandals for women. So how much would all this cost to build? I expect it to be somewhere in the 100s of trillions of dollars, what do all you say
