Spain, officially the Spanish Empire (Spanish: Imperio Español), is a country in Southwestern Europe located on the Iberian peninsula, which is constituted as a monarchy led by King 32Pengun, with the capital being Madrid. Spain borders with France to the north, as well as Britain and Germany in its Dutch territories. Its is currently winning at a war with Portugal with the event being called the Iberian war.
The nation of Spain was planned to have been founded a week after Terra Nova's release, but many of the main members having to deal with exams IRL delayed it until September 16, 2018. Everything was going well until the 18th of November 2018, when Zqppy came back and was made the new King of Spain. However, he didn't have the same hype he had in July 2017 when he made Spain on EMC classic, so he resigned, giving his throne to EchoOcelot.
The first collapse
This began the period referred to in Spanish history as the first collapse, in which Spain totally collapsed due to EchoOcelot being an abusive king. After rebellions on the 22nd of November, EchoOcelot moved the capital to The Hague and renamed the country to the Netherlands, making the Spanish rebel and begin gathering gold.
The saving up took 15 days, because of only a few, mainly NSGamer_, IronFerreumCubum, and Pulpo_Pol being able to get online. However, on 5 December 2018, this effort was justified despite all the trouble. The new country of Spain was made, this time under the administration of NSGamer_, who had previously ruled over Spain in Classic until May/June 2018.
On the week of Resurrection, as Spaniards call the week in which Spain was founded again, the Spanish government established relations with France. The government had also been aiding the Byzantines against the Ottoman Turks but remained neutral in most ongoing conflicts.
Spain suffered some changes, with the peaceful independence of the Philippines and the incorporation of Florida. The Spanish Army fought the Battle of Flanders against Jevil and managed to get him to retreat, the battle was won at the cost of a fallen soldier.
The Spanish triumphed over locals and Echo's Netherlands at the Low Countries, managing to own Flanders, Wallonia, Utrecht, and the last of these, Leeuwarden, which was bought for 32 gold.
Colonization and a new king
On December 6, 2018, king NSGamer_ abdicated and traveled to the Caribbean to make the Spanish Antilles, a young yet promising colony. Another overseas kingdom, Perú, was going to be created soon, but that never happened. Ferreo I was appointed as the new King of Spain, and the capital was moved to Cadiz.
The second collapse
Since the new king came, Spain starting declining with all the mayors going inactive and tons of towns falling. NSGamer_ even quit causing the Spanish Antilles to fall. Spain soon turned into a dead nation with just a few small towns across the peninsula and an inactive king.
The big city of Perpignan led by 32Pengun started the nation of Aragon. It took control over New Madrid, Valencia, and the Balearics in a short amount of time. It also started new cities such as Zaragoza, Pamiers, and La Marina.
Days later, the nation of Spain was sold by Ferreo I to Zqppy and was moved to Italy. Aragon took this as a chance and invited all leftover Spanish towns promising a new and better Spain. Many towns accepted and Aragon was named to Hispania, which was then later quickly named to Spain. Castellon became the new capital, which is Madrid today.
The new Spain slowly started growing due to new cities being planted all across it. It also started the expansion into Morocco and started an alliance with the GRE and France known as The Triumvirate. Spain started to become a relevant and decent European nation.
On the 3rd of November, 2019, a Portuguese-owned town in Galicia left Spain for Portugal, officially breaking the border agreement between the two nations. Spain ultimately demanded Portugal to remove the town. Portugal didn't cede, and on November 6 Spain declared war, beginning The Iberian War. Since then, most Portuguese players were banned for doxxing. It was later found out they also duplicated gold to win the war and collaborated with alts. These bans secured an easy victory for Spain, but the war is still ongoing as some Portuguese players refuse to surrender.

Spain currently has 1 province, which is Canarias. There has also been a past province lasting 1 year long which was Catalonia, but later fell due to inactivity and was fully taken over by Spain.
Catalonia was an autonomous Spanish province region located in northern Iberia. Catalonia wanted independence, but the King immediately rejected the plan. However, after long talks, CrossTwinz and Pengun came to an agreement to have Catalonia as an in-game nation, but officially as a province of Spain.
