What would a country governed exclusively by women be like?

The Party of the Erotic Left (PEL) has won the presidential elections in Faguas, a small country in Latin America. Its determined members will take advantage of their qualities and defects as women to change their country, cleaning it up as though it were a messy house, buffing it until it sparkles. In order to do this, President Viviana Sansón and her four ministers will have to throw all the men out of their administration: the moment has come for them to make a real and lasting change. But it won't be so easy…...

Enemies of PEL soon appear - including bitter female ones: at one of its public presentations, an assassination attempt is made on President Sansón. Who was the shooter and what hidden interests do they represent? Will PEL withstand the onslaught from its adversaries? And will Faguas be a better country under its government?

El país de las mujeres (A Women's Nation) is a powerful and funny novel that will undoubtedly give women (and men) plenty to talk about.
