Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Rose Commune of Caelapes is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Victor Linden with a fair hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, compulsory gun ownership, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 12.669 billion Caelapenes love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare are also considered important, 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 2,651 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 209,305 rosariuses, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes, fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, teenagers performing appendectomies on their friends has become a popular schoolyard prank, and most citizens in Caelapes are abject pyrophobes after extremely graphic pamphlets were mailed nationwide by the government. 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 168,465th in the world and 385th in The Internationale for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.44 Crimes Per Hour.
