The United Provinces of Rio de la Plata is a colossal, genial nation, renowned for its closed borders, compulsory military service, and national health service. The compassionate, cynical population of 6.59 billion rioplatenses are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government 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 84.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming rioplatense economy, worth 542 trillion pesos a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Basket Weaving, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 82,313 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 37,019th in the world and 11th in Latinoamerica Libre for Most Extreme, scoring 30.13 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
