The La Plata of Nevbrejnovitz is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by President Mandrake with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 6.143 billion Platinans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The minute, corrupt, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order and Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Buenos Aires. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Platinan economy, worth a remarkable 1,387 trillion Platinan Pesos a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 225,792 Platinan Pesos, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,315,811 per year while the poor average 18,273, a ratio of 72.0 to 1.

The nation is renowned abroad for its love of blood and guts, dubiously qualified Skandilundian barristers keep referring to laws as 'government guidelines', in a fit of passion President Mandrake has shredded thirty years' worth of petitions, and real estate agencies are being replaced by naval recruitment offices. Crime is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Nevbrejnovitz's national animal is the Catus Felinus, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Secular.

Nevbrejnovitz is ranked 92,829th in the world and 173rd in Commonwealth of Liberty for Most Developed, scoring 56.41 on the Human Development Index.
