The Rose Commune of Caelapes is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Victor Linden with a fair hand, and notable for its soft-spoken computers, national health service, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 14.785 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, although Environment, Welfare, and Healthcare are also considered important, 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 3,169 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 214,386 rosariuses, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

An increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, large sections of Caelapes have been named national reserves to protect the native tribes living there, and debates on whether toilet seats should be left up or down are increasingly commonplace. Crime 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 32,869th in the world and 183rd in The Internationale for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
