The United Mangrove Archipelago of Ransium is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Scipio with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 32.262 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 government prioritizes Environment, with Healthcare, Social Policy, and Industry also on the agenda, while Education and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mangrove City. The average income tax rate is 97.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Ransiumian economy, worth a remarkable 6,800 trillion Cloyns a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 210,801 Cloyns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Mangrove City's main city thoroughfare has been blocked by a row of leyland cypresses that mysteriously appeared overnight, if a tree falls in the forest and nobody is there to hear it... Ransiumian satellites can detect it, vitriolic divorce proceedings have become prime-time television, and the nation's green cities are indeed concrete jungles. 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 115th in the world and 2nd in Forest for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 10,779.53 Bank.
