The United Mangrove Archipelago of Ransium is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Scipio with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, lack of airports, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 34.073 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, although Healthcare, Social Policy, and Industry are also considered important, while Education and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mangrove City. The average income tax rate is 97.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Ransiumian economy, worth a remarkable 7,237 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 212,401 Cloyns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's green cities are indeed concrete jungles, the hit new medical TV show "Home" prominently features the brand of painkiller the lead doctor is addicted to, academics have a bone to pick with free market entrepreneurs, and factories place endangered birds in their rafters in pursuit of government protections. 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 242,851st in the world and 257th in Forest for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.37 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
