In 1863 the country had just held its first nation-wide elections. Barto-lomé Mitre was President, and in 1862 Buenos Aires was chosen as the seat of the new government. The population was in 1855 estimated at 1,171,000. About half of the territory was under effective control, the rest being thinly populated by the Indians. The 1863 budget estimates were 87m. pesos (£750,000) revenue and 89.5m. pesos (£771,000) expenditure; the national debt was £3m.
