The Rose Commune of Caelapes is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Victor Linden with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, avant-garde cinema, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 13.696 billion Caelapenes 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, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Scva. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Caelapitan economy, worth a remarkable 2,925 trillion rosariuses 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 Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Basket Weaving. Average income is an amazing 213,590 rosariuses, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

With increasingly clear skies nobody seems to mind the electricity bill going through the roof, Caelapes has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world, the government is spending millions on alternative clean-burning fuels, and school history books often refer to Victor Linden as "that imperialist pig dog". Crime is totally unknown. Caelapes's national animal is the blue-billed duck, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is state atheism.

Caelapes is ranked 1,059th in the world and 5th in The Internationale for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 33,849.71 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
