The United Mangrove Archipelago of Ransium is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Scipio with an even hand, and notable for its teetotalling pirates, smutty television, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, cheerful population of 30.197 billion Ransites have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Environment, with Healthcare, Social Policy, and Industry also on the agenda, while Defense and Education receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mangrove City. The average income tax rate is 97.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Ransiumian economy, worth a remarkable 6,561 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 217,287 Cloyns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Emergency services don't respond to trailer park fires, it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, the election for Scipio's office's janitor is heating up, and police officers often head to work wearing onesies and fluffy pink bunny-slippers. 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 251st in the world and 6th in Forest for Highest Crime Rates, with 106.01 Crimes Per Hour.
