Patagonia Republic, officially the Democratic Republic of Patagonia, is a country in South America, constituted as a federation of 23 provinces and an autonomous city. It is the third largest country in South America and 18th in the world by land area, and is the second most populated German Speaking country in the world. Its continental area is between the Andes mountain range in the west and the southern Atlantic Ocean in the east and south. Patagonia Republic borders Brazil at the north, and the Incan Empire to the northwest. Patagonia Republic also claimed 969,464 sq km (374,312 sq mi) of Antarctica, known as Patagonian Antarctica.

In the beginnings of the XIX century, it was an Incan province with no population, but in the Incan German war, Inca yielded this territory to the Reich, and it was converted into a German territory, colonizing it. It was a German colony until 1898, when the II Reich gave them their independence.

Patagonian's nominal GDP is the 35th largest in the world; but when purchasing power is taken into account, its total GDP makes it the 36th largest economy in the world.

The country is currently classified as an Upper-Middle Income Country or as a secondary emerging market by the World Bank. Patagonia is also one of the G-20 major economies.
