The Rose Commune of Caelapes is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Victor Linden with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, state-planned economy, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 16.217 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 government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Welfare, and Healthcare also on the agenda, 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 3,744 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 230,914 rosariuses, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, a suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League, 1% of global paper production is bound for the National Archive, and it's been a banner year for local vexillology. 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 2,647th in the world and 7th in The Internationale for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
