The United Mangrove Archipelago of Ransium is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Scipio with an even hand, and renowned for its national health service, complete lack of prisons, and fear of technology. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 31.675 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 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 6,688 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 211,161 Cloyns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, the libraries of Ransium are staffed by lone, lonely librarians, stony-faced prosecutors play loud gangster rap music during court proceedings, and Mona Lola's famous mysterious smile is being altered to resemble Scipio's enigmatic grin. 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 46,000th in the world and 218th in Forest for Most Developed, scoring 66.92 on the Human Development Index.
