Rio de la Plata

Population8.637 billion



The United Provinces of Rio de la Plata is a colossal, efficient nation, renowned for its national health service, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 8.637 billion rioplatenses 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Trinidad. The average income tax rate is 89.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient rioplatense economy, worth 686 trillion pesos a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is dominated by the Woodchip Exports industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Basket Weaving, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 79,467 pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dozens of viewers tune in weekly to hear whether a comma has been added to Clause 5 in Subsection B of Law 58375, the constant playing of Merry Birthday on rioplatense radio has led to calls for the song to be classified as a crime against humanity, there is an abondance of ackawi and zartschmelzend in every rioplatense grocery store, and the government is a law unto itself. 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 21,362nd in the world and 5th in Latinoamerica Libre for Most Stationary, with 896.12503064628 Days.
