The United Mangrove Archipelago of Ransium is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Scipio with a fair hand, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol, frequent executions, and fear of technology. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 27.316 billion Ransites hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The medium-sized, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Environment, with Healthcare, Welfare, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Administration and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mangrove City. The average income tax rate is 98.0%.
The enormous but inefficient Ransiumian economy, worth a remarkable 2,851 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 impressive 104,402 Cloyns, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.
Exceptionally healthy police officers can sprint after crooks for hours on end, worrywarts have started advocating for a paint ban, college-level writing classes are taught by undergraduate editors of the school newspaper, and father-son fishing trips have been banned. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Ransium's national animal is the Tiger Shark, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Mangrovism.
