The present work is an endeavour to determine analytically features of the stationary measure of a non-integrable zero-range process, and to investigate the possible existence of phase transitions for such a nonequilibrium model. The rates defining the model do not satisfy the constraints necessary for the stationary measure to be a product measure. Even in the absence of a drive, detailed balance with respect to this measure is violated. Analytical and numerical investigations on the complete graph demonstrate the existence of a first-order phase transition between a fluid phase and a condensed phase, where a single site has macroscopic occupation. The transition is sudden from an imbalanced fluid where both species have densities larger than the critical density, to a critical neutral fluid and an imbalanced condensate.
