[R] Problem when fitting a constant response

I would like to treat a very simple case : to fit a linear model with 5
parameters (including main terms, interactions and quadratic terms using
a central composite design with 27 runs) for a constant response (e.g
resp = 100.0). The fitting process works and return me a good intercept
value (the value of my constant) and some negligeable effects (around
e-15). But, I don't understand some results :
the t values (or the F stat) indicates some influent parameters
(although they are negligeable in comparison with the intercept) and the
R2 value is not equal to 1 (Multiple r2 = 0.72, and adj r2 = -0.187),
although the residuals are near zero. I know, it is a very special case
(regression is not necessary), but it is just to understand what is

Thank you in advance,
