Ransium was Commended by Security Council Resolution # 236

The United Mangrove Archipelago of Ransium is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Scipio with an even hand, and renowned for its digital currency, keen interest in outer space, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 30.447 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 are ignored. 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 6,764 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 222,157 Cloyns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Female brains are believed to heat up dangerously when 'overclocked', genetic research has been halted, burning members of the Order of Violet is the nation's favorite pastime, and nouveau riche farmers diligently take care of their golden calf herds. 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 197,886th in the world and 359th in Forest for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring -6.48 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
