The United Mangrove Archipelago of Ransium is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Scipio with an even hand, and renowned for its feral children, anti-smoking policies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 30.479 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 is primarily concerned with Environment, with Healthcare, Social Policy, and Industry also on the agenda, while Defense and Education are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mangrove City. The average income tax rate is 97.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Ransiumian economy, worth a remarkable 6,909 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 226,694 Cloyns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Churches across the land are hurriedly installing auto-tune for their choirs, the request to "give us our daily bread" can only be fulfilled six days out of seven, the combined alert sound of a nation simultaneously receiving a text message is a common cause of hearing damage, and the government's religious works are headed by a New Age guru. 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 137,541st in the world and 319th in Forest for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 75.46 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
