In April 15, 2017, The very first La Plata (then called Río de La Plata) in EarthMC history was founded (presumably by SoyGalletita) and its territory was owned by the Spanish Federation, a mega-nation who had one of their states established there.
Curiously, La Plata never reached total independence of Spain in Classic (although it wasn't one of their colonies).
On November 15, 2018, the nation La Plata (now independent) was first established in Terranova by SoyGalletita with the capital being Buenos Aires.
War of Nuovo Palermo
Main article: Battle of Nuovo Palermo
On January 15, 2019, four users established a town in the Valdes Peninsula, located on the south of La Plata. This town, called Nuovo Palermo, was invited to the nation but they denied the request to join. This response wasn't to the liking of La Plata's authorities as it would mean losing all the southern territory. Following this, citizens of the intruder town were toxic at La Plata and this last fact was the trigger to start a fight for the land.
On January 22, the nation Argentina was founded by Nuovo Palermo's leader, ishallownyou. This meant the first (and only) battle to come next.
On January 23, La Plata executed a well-designed and ambitious plan to attack Nuovo Palermo. However, things didn't work as expected and for when Nuovo Palermo residents went online, La Plata (who brought 10 soldiers) already left the fort. This meant in La Plata fighting while being highly outnumbered (because all of their soldiers went offline for the combat time) and obviously, losing the battle.
After this, both nations came to peace after signing the peace treaty and the territory was succesfully negotiated. Nuovo Palermo would occupy Patagonia, and couldn't make towns further north than the Valdes Peninsula
On March 26th 2019, Argentina fell into ruin after months of inactivity and one month later, the nation currently known as Patagonia occupied its ruins and territory.
Division of La Plata
After the Battle of Nuovo Palermo, on January 29, 2019, La Plata's territory changed. There were IRL towns in Chile which were outside of the range of the nation. A nation called Chile was recently created, so La Plata's leadership purchased the nation. The La Platan towns in Chile were moved to the new nation
La Plata would now only occupy middle and northern Argentina, Uruguay and a part of Bolivia.
The southernmost part would be controlled by the nation Patagonia (ishallownyou) (now a deceased nation).
The Western area would be managed by the nation Chile.
Guashimingo was an Uruguayan user that made a town off the coast of Buenos Aires. The town was called Pirates, and the ruins are still there. Near the end of February, the town was invited to La Plata, and he accepted. However, Guashimingo soon started scamming people. At the beginning, the La Platan users defended him because they didn't know what happened. This made La Platan citizens fight with users scammed by Guashimingo, and other users that defended the scammed ones. Nbax, the leader of Ecuador at the time, was one of the users that attacked Guashimingo. This effectively caused a series of skirmishes between the nations. After some time, La Plata kicked Pirates out for scamming and stopped the war.
Name change to Argentina
On March 26th, 2019, La Plata changed its name to Argentina, after the name got free because Argentina fell beinto ruin. In this date, La Plata passed to be known not as the nation but the mega-nation formed between Argentina and Chile.
Reconquest of Malvinas
Main article: Second Falklands-Malvinas War
On June 30, 2020, Argentina attempted to recover the abandoned territory in the Falkland Islands (which was entirely owned by the nation during 2019) establishing a town called Malvinas (now Malvinas_Oeste) after rumors of a new nation being made there. This quick movement resulted in the second Malvinas War between Argentina and the foreign town BritishFalklands, owned by Joel02.
On July 8, after one battle, Argentina declared decisive victory due to the purchase of British Falklands for 200G. This meant the first success of the whole La Plata in wars, as previous conflicts of this size were all defeats.
Argentina is an independent nation that is governed by a parliamentary monarchy economically capitalist. Its king is Mr_RockyRoll.
The government is formed by the king, three high chancellors, four low chancellors and governors. Until late 2019, there were ministries but they were then discontinued due to inactivity.
The territory of Argentina is divided in 8 provinces:
The province of Pampeana is located to the central part of the nation. It's only occupied by the capital city (Buenos Aires) and 3 residents.
The province of Malvinas is located in the western island of the Islas Malvinas. It's occupied by two towns (Malvinas Oeste and Malvinas Central) and 10 residents, making it the most populated province of Argentina.
The economy of Argentina is currently not in the first places but it's considered to be exemplar in South America. The most popular economical activities are trading, mining and agriculture.
As most of the nations, Argentina has many shops in its spawn so this is what makes most of the income for the national bank. The biggest towns also have shops for serving their new residents.
Mining is a popular activity amongst argentinian residents. Lots of gold and diamonds are extracted from mines throughout the nation every month.
In the first edition of EarthMC Olympics, Argentina competed for the categories of ice-road race and duels but it only could finish 4th in duels with no more feats accomplished.
There are currently three football stadiums in the country (one in Resistencia and two in Rosario), one golf course in Resistencia and a horse racing course in Malvinas (this last is planning to be used in future national competitions). However, as most of these sports can't be played in-game without mods, they currently work as PVP arenas.
In mid-2019, there was a plan to make an ice-road course on Buenos Aires but it was never accomplished due to the lack of economical support by the government for the project.
The "Ejército Nacional Argentino [ENA]" (National Argentine Army in spanish) was created on April 2019 and it is ensured of protecting the nation territory and population against threats in wars. There are no soldiers in the army as all the citizens may be part of it without any instruction process made before. The former commander of the ENA was Loogath, currently it is Nikocholas.
Argentina is part of the South Cone Union (SCU), an alliance between five nations of South America alongside Chile, Perú, Paraguay and Patagonia.
- Patagonia (closeness and members of the SCU)
- France (close friends and spanish speaker)
- Atlanta (close friends and spanish speaker)
- Hawaiian Islands (close friends and spanish speaker)
- Dominion of Inca (toxicity against La Plata for months)
Currently, Argentina has a railway system (called Ferrocarril Central Argentino [FFC]) to move people from south to north and from west to east. All routes start at Retiro Station, located in Buenos Aires.
- ROUTE A (southeast): Starts in Buenos Aires, ends in Mar del Plata with previous stop at Tandil and Claromecó. STATUS: Finished.

- ROUTE E (northeast): Starts in Buenos Aires, ends in Posadas with previous stops at Chacabuco, Rosario, Santa Fe, Reconquista and Resistencia. STATUS: Finished until Rosario.
There is an subway system too, which was made for long journeys. It works with ice-roads and currently has the following routes:
- MALVINAS: Towards the Falkland Islands (south).
- TRANSANDINO: Towards Chile (west).
- LITORAL: Towards Paraguay (north).
