The United Mangrove Archipelago of Ransium is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Scipio with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, rampant corporate plagiarism, and frequent executions. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 31.67 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 97.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Ransiumian economy, worth a remarkable 6,671 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 210,656 Cloyns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The recently liberated free press cautiously uses compliment sandwiches to cushion its criticisms of Scipio, children have only the most basic of education, the government-run newspapers insist that everything is fine, and Scipio's handshakes with opposition leaders usually lead to thumb wars. 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 1,747th in the world and 16th in Forest for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 67.57 Whatever.
