The Rose Commune of Caelapes is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Victor Linden with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, hatred of cheese, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 13.352 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, Welfare, and Healthcare 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 2,832 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 212,161 rosariuses, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is avowedly secular, the government spends millions of rosariuses every year prosecuting spammers, welfare funding has recently gone through the roof, and a suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League. 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 933rd in the world and 20th in The Internationale for Nicest Citizens, with 67.83 Average Smiles Per Day.
