La Plata is a country in South America. It borders Brazil to the north, the Atlantic Ocean to the east, Chile to the west and Bolivia to the northwest.



From 1880 Argentina enjoyed a period of economic boom and great prosperity based on the export of wheat and cattle, allowing the nation to achieve a moderate industrialization. Argentina went to war with Bolivia in 1933, ostensibly over the attempted Bolivian annexation of Paraguay, which marked the beginning of the Great South American War. In 1934 Argentinean troops won a series of victories against the Bolivian forces and easily evicted them from occupied Paraguay, but in response Brazil declared war on Argentina, and her armed forces a rapid advance to the La Plata river, overrunning the tiny nation of Uruguay in the process. However, the Brazilian advance was halted at the La Plata as the war got bogged down in trench systems. In late 1934, Argentinean forces inflicted a further another series of devastating defeats on the Bolivians, and Bolivia was forced to sue for peace before the close of the year. This victory meant that Argentina was free to focus on Brazil, and they began a counter-attack in 1935, which succeeded in routing the Brazilian troops and ejecting them into Curitiba. With her home lands threatened and her forces in disarray Brazil sued for peace.Shortly after this great success the governments of Paraguay and Uruguay were "federated" with Argentina, creating the Union of La Plata.

In 1936, La Plata is still facing problems, not least that the people of Paraguay and Uruguay don’t feel any connection to the Union and nationalism is ripe. Also an already resurgent Bolivia has begun to rearm, and Brazil’s currently weak government looks set to give way to a landslide victory by Getulio Vargas’ progressives. Can La Plata stay intact in the face of her so quickly resurgent foes?
