Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Rose Commune of Caelapes is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Victor Linden with a fair hand, and remarkable for its avant-garde cinema, complete lack of prisons, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 13.039 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, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. 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 2,731 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 209,458 rosariuses, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens try to pass off bottlecaps they found in their backyards as historical artifacts, counselors have to sign pledges supporting gay rights before they can speak to any patients, the people elect the Supreme Court justices directly, and glamping Caelapenes won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi. 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 2,522nd in the world and 48th in The Internationale for Most Income Equality, scoring 97.08 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
