The Rose Commune of Caelapes is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Victor Linden with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, rampant corporate plagiarism, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 14.968 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, with Environment, Welfare, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. 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 3,281 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an amazing 219,214 rosariuses, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is against the rules of boxing to hit above or below the belt, attendance of fathers at PTA meetings is at an all-time high, the new Blue-billed duck Supremacy Party is faring well in the polls, and the military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Caelapes's national animal is the blue-billed duck, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Caelapes is ranked 955th in the world and 9th in The Internationale for Most Cultured, scoring 298 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
