REPUBLIC OF THE CHILDREN

One of Eva Peron’s weirder accomplishments was the establishment of a miniature nation-within-a-nation known as the Republica de los Ninos.

Senora Peron oversaw the construction of the bizarre theme park, which features train stations, plazas and all the usual state institutions, providing the youth of Argentina with hands-on experience in fascist governance. Once a year, the city council of La Plata holds a special session to ratify laws enacted by the Youth Government of the Republic of Children. Hitler only wishes he had thought of this idea.

The park officially opened in La Plata in 1951. The dictator Juan Domingo Peron attended the opening ceremony, as his wife was terminally ill at the time. The previous year, Walt Disney reportedly visited the site, gaining inspiration for a fascist theme park of his own.
