Rio de la Plata

Population7.289 billion



The United Provinces of Rio de la Plata is a colossal, orderly nation, notable for its frequent executions, pith helmet sales, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, cynical population of 7.289 billion rioplatenses are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Trinidad. The average income tax rate is 87.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming rioplatense economy, worth 575 trillion pesos a year, is highly specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Basket Weaving, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 78,970 pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The song 'They Got an Awful Lot of Coffee in Rio de la Plata' is a smash hit, the "blue screen of death" forces many trials to be either aborted or restarted, foreign spirits are hard to find due to an abundance of "Cletus and Jim Bob's Homemade Rioplatense Moonshine", and the sound of wooden legs echo throughout Rio de la Plata after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rio de la Plata's national animal is the hornero, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Rio de la Plata is ranked 11,774th in the world and 8th in Latinoamerica Libre for Largest Black Market, with 58.7 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
