The De la Plata Confederacy of Old Utopia is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Juan Ferdinando Leoz with an even hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.696 billion La Platans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Santa Fe. The average income tax rate is 91.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient La Platan economy, worth 793 trillion Pesos a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 139,243 Pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Books are so highly regarded in Old Utopia that libraries are often revered as holy shrines, the thin blue line is composed of picketing police officers demanding better pensions, tourists call La Platan beach towns "the fine coastline", and history textbook pages are used as impromptu tissues by distraught students. Crime is totally unknown. Old Utopia's national animal is the Hornero, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Old Utopia is ranked 107,225th in the world and 106th in Greater Middle East for Most Stationary, with 41.21002223668 Days.
