The Rose Commune of Caelapes is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Ester ScŠuola with a fair hand, and remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 19.724 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 government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of ScŠva. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Caelapitan economy, worth a remarkable 4,786 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, Tourism, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an amazing 242,666 rosariuses, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Referenda are held for every conceivable government action, the government has declared victoria over the cheese menace, the state auctions off combat drones to fund war reparations, and citizens are strongly encouraged to breathe less so as to limit the carbon footprint. 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 55,940th in the world and 64th in The Internationale for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 3,494.58 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
