The Rose Commune of Caelapes is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Ester ScŠuola with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, prohibition of alcohol, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 20.373 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 is ignored. 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 4,925 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. Average income is an amazing 241,758 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 535th in the world and 7th in The Internationale for Healthiest Citizens, with 39.87 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
