The United Mangrove Archipelago of Ransium is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Scipio with an even hand, and notable for its feral children, ritual sacrifices, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 30.453 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, although Healthcare, Social Policy, and Industry are also considered important, 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 97.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Ransiumian economy, worth a remarkable 6,775 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 222,494 Cloyns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Burning members of the Order of Violet is the nation's favorite pastime, nouveau riche farmers diligently take care of their golden calf herds, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, and the law says it's okay to sell a bomb to a terrorist so long as they promise not to detonate it. 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 223,411th in the world and 418th in Forest for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -44.67 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
