Ransium was Commended by Security Council Resolution # 236

The United Mangrove Archipelago of Ransium is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Scipio with a fair hand, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol, ban on automobiles, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 32.832 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, with Healthcare, Social Policy, and Industry also on the agenda, while Education and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mangrove City. The average income tax rate is 97.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Ransiumian economy, worth a remarkable 6,935 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 211,249 Cloyns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

If a tree falls in the forest and nobody is there to hear it... Ransiumian satellites can detect it, vitriolic divorce proceedings have become prime-time television, the nation's green cities are indeed concrete jungles, and the hit new medical TV show "Home" prominently features the brand of painkiller the lead doctor is addicted to. 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 5,967th in the world and 89th in Forest for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,497.77 tourists per hour.
