The Queendom of Caellus is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lady Rensselaer with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 7.177 billion Caellusians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Coruscarim. The average income tax rate is 98.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Caellusian economy, worth a remarkable 2,240 trillion florins a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 312,247 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Years of counter-terrorism planning are foiled by small details, the police crack down on tax evaders without mercy, government bureaucrats devote many man-hours to trying to measure unquantifiables, and motorbike jousters live young and die fast. Crime is totally unknown. Caellus's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Atheism.

Caellus is ranked 1,106th in the world and 1st in The Leftist Assembly for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 32,975.75 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
