The United Mangrove Archipelago of Ransium is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Scipio with an even hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, frequent executions, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 31.369 billion Ransites are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government is primarily concerned with Environment, although Healthcare, Social Policy, and Industry are also considered important, while Defense and Education aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mangrove City. The average income tax rate is 97.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Ransiumian economy, worth a remarkable 6,720 trillion Cloyns a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 214,247 Cloyns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Invasive species are hunted by the gendarmerie, it is not politically correct to suspect that a serially convicted burglar might steal again, the parliament building has installed a revolving door, and young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Ransium's national animal is the Tiger Shark, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Mangrovism.

Ransium is ranked 86th in the world and 2nd in Forest for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 10,147.56 Bank.
