The United Mangrove Archipelago of Ransium is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Scipio with a fair hand, and renowned for its fear of technology, lack of airports, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 26.761 billion Ransites hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The medium-sized, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Environment, with Healthcare, Welfare, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Administration and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mangrove City. The average income tax rate is 97.9%.
The enormous but inefficient Ransiumian economy, worth a remarkable 2,834 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 impressive 105,934 Cloyns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.
Scipio has been known to make speeches in fishing waders, if a tree falls in the forest and nobody is there to hear it... Ransiumian satellites can detect it, exceptionally healthy police officers can sprint after crooks for hours on end, and worrywarts have started advocating for a paint ban. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Ransium's national animal is the Tiger Shark, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Mangrovism.
