Ransium was Commended by Security Council Resolution # 236

The United Mangrove Archipelago of Ransium is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Scipio with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, national health service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 31.705 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, although Healthcare, Social Policy, and Industry are also considered important, while Education and Defense aren't funded at all. 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 6,670 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 210,381 Cloyns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prematurely retired barristers twitch in anxiety when they talk about their courtroom experiences, the people are famous throughout the region for their perfect yellow teeth, the nation tends not to learn from its history, and the mentally ill are given high powered automatic weapons for "catharsis therapy". 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 237,251st in the world and 451st in Forest for Most Secular, with 6.39 Atheism Rate.
