Caelapes ( /kaɪˈlɑːpeɪz/; Latin: Cælāpes), officially the Rose Commune of Caelapes (Latin: Commūne Roseum Cælāpidicum) abbreviated RCC (Latin: CRC) is an island country in the Seditian Sea. Caelapes is an archipelago comprising four major islands, Mosolea, Passiflora, Alessor, and Misley, which together make up nearly ninety percent of Caelapes's land area, and many surrounding small islets and atolls. Mosolea is the largest and most populous island in the Seditian Sea.
Caelapes was settled in the tenth century by libertini, freed slaves, who organized an early commune on the previously uninhabited island Passiflora. In the thirteenth century, Caelapes came under the influence of the Conflent dynasty, who expanded their power and ruled as the Caelapitan royal family for nearly eight hundred years until Ricardus II abdicated the throne in 2007 in a wave of liberalization that led to the establishment of the Caelapitan Federation.
In early 2016, a broad coalition of socialists organized the People's Vanguard and overthrew the federal republic, establishing a socialist commune in Caelapes for the first time in over a millennium.
The capital and largest city is Scæva, on the Tannenmille Ridge on Mosolea.
The name Caelapes is derived from the Latin caelus, meaning "sky," and lapidēs, meaning "jewels."
