Spain Spain is the largest country in the Iberian Peninsula and the second of the European Union, after France. Spain was formed in 1469, as a union between the two Spanish countries Castile Castile and Aragon Aragon, as shown on the flag (the current red-yellow flag appeared around 1780). The conquests of Granada Granada (1492) and Navarra Navarra (1512) completed the current Spanish territory.

Spain was the leader in colonization of the new world and had much of South America, the Caribbean, and southern North America. These new world territories brought Spain great wealth. Spain's massive fleet protected the new world and monopolized colonization. Other minor nations (mainly England England) were jealous, so they began sending pirates to attack Spanish fleets, which brought gold from the Americas. At the same time, royal marriages brought a vast amount of European territories under Spanish control (including Portugal Portugal, the 2nd colonial power, in 1581), suddenly turning Spain into the biggest European power. In August 1588, At the peak of Spain's power, Spain went to war with England England and sent the Spanish Armada to invade her enemy. The terrible weather and disorganization sunk a majority of the Spanish fleet. Anyway, in early 1600s, the war ended in a good way for Spain after an even bigger English Armada suffered an ever bigger defeat in a failed invasion of Portugal Portugal (owned by Spain).

The Spanish Succession war (1701-1713) ended Spanish rule over its European possessions and ceded the leadership of mainland Europe to France France. The Spanish Empire still ruled the oceans until its defeat to the English in the Trafalgar Battle (1804). Fighting the French invasion from 1808-1814, Spain couldn't avoid to loss most of its colonies to independence. Since then, England England became the biggest power in the world while Spain started a steady decline, falling behind in industrialization and affronting severe internal conflict, reaching its peak with the defeat in the Spanish-American War and loss of the last colonies in 1898 to the United States of America United States. Spain would become a republic in 1931, but in 1936-9, a Civil War turned Spain into a fascist dictatorship which would survive until a new constitution was passed in 1978, turning Spain into a constitutional monarchy. Spain joined NATO in 1982 and the European Union European Union in 1986, becoming completely integrated into the Western World.

StrategyEdit

Present Day Edit

Make sure to have a decent army before you start this. First you have to have decent allies like Germany Germany, Belgium Belgium (and Portugal Portugal if you want to expand elsewhere) Then IMMEDIATELY declare war on Morocco Morocco because if you do it to late Morocco Morocco will get powerful allies and destroy you. Then you can invade Portugal Portugal if you're not allied to them but if you're prepared invade Modern France France one your part of Morocco Morocco is stable. Before attacking Modern France France you need to leave the European Union European Union because you can't attack any EU nations. Take Southern France away so that you border Italy Italy, if they are allied to Germany Germany and other nations don't attack them attack Switzerland Switzerland if possible. If you can't attack Switzerland Switzerland because you don't border them try attacking North Africa and getting colonies then invade the rest of Africa, Work your way through invading Europe and the rest of the world.
