The Democratic People's Republic of Zarate-Campana is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Military Junta with an iron fist, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, avant-garde cinema, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 2.364 billion Zarateños 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 enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zárate. The average income tax rate is 75.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Zarateño economy, worth 178 trillion Zarateño Escudoes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is 75,665 Zarateño Escudoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Ministers browse Alright! magazine for fashion tips, earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, sniffer dogs check train passengers for body odour, and the government has legalised small-scale capitalism. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zarate-Campana's national animal is the jaguar, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is State Secularism.

Zarate-Campana is ranked 6,142nd in the world and 3rd in Union de Naciones Latinas e Ibericas for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 10,604.54 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
