Bienvenidos a Espana!
The Kingdom of Spain is a predominantly Roman Catholic country that is part of the Iberian Peninsula in southwestern Europe, bordering the Bay of Biscay, the Mediterranean Sea, North Atlantic Ocean, and Pyrenees Mountains, southwest of France. Spain's neighbors are Portugal, Morroco, Gibraltar (UK), Andorra, and France . It is home to around 46.5 million and is 506.000 km² (194,884 sq. mi.), including the Balearic and the Canary Islands. Spain itself is a very sunny country, with a terrain filled with High plateaus, lowland areas such as narrow coastal plains, and mountainous regions. Much of Spain's land has been devoted to farming.
The Spanish ancestry is owed to various ethnic groups. Iberian tribes moved into the peninsula at some point during the second millennium B.C. --whether from north Africa or southern Europe-- and spread out over a broad area. During the eighth and ninth centuries B.C. Phoenicians, Greeks, Carthaginians, and a significant number of Celtic immigrants from central and northern Europe entered the peninsula. This highly diversified ethnic stocks of the pre-Roman period, constituting the ancestors of the later Spaniards. Disparate societies and the tribal organization of the Iberian inhabitants slow down the conquest of "Hispania" by the Romans, lasting from 218 B.C. to 19 B.C. With the decline of the Roman empire, Suebi, Vandals and Alans took control of parts of Hispania. Followed by the Visigoths, who conquered all of Hispania in the 5th century A.D. and established a kingdom lasting until 711, when it fell to an invasion by Islamic North African Moors. The Reconquista, the struggle among the Christian kingdoms and the Moors lasted until 1492. By 1512, the unification of present-day Spain was complete.
During the 16th century, Spain became the most powerful nation in Europe, due to the immense wealth derived from their possessions in the Americas. The steady decline of Spanish power in Europe began at the end of the 16th century, in the 19th century Spain suffered the loss of most of its colonies.
With the victory of his nationalist forces in 1939, General Francisco Franco ruled a nation exhausted politically and economically, isolated by the Allies.
In 1955 Spain joined the United Nations. 1975 Franco's personally designated heir Prince Juan Carlos assumed the position of king and head of state.
Spain joined NATO in 1982 and became a member of the European Union in 1986. Spain also has several autonomous regions, some being Andalusia, Catalonia, Basque Country, and Galicia. In 2005, Spain legalized gay marriage.
Spain's most predominant language is Spanish, but other languages are Catalan-Valenciana 17%, Galician 7%, Basque 2%. Spanish is spoken by 329 million, and ranks as the world's No. 3 language in terms of how many people speak it as their first language. Spanish is also the official language of Algeria, Andorra, Argentina, Belize, Benin, Bolivia, Chad, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Rep., Ecuador, El Salvador, Eq. Guinea, Guatemala, Honduras, Ivory Coast, Madagascar, Mali, Mexico, Morocco, Nicaragua, Niger, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Togo, Tunisia, Uruguay, and Venezuela. It is slightly ahead of English (328 million) but far behind Chinese (1.2 billion). It is part of the Romance family, and in accordance to the famous Charles V quote " Spanish is good for talking with God".

Anita is a 5 foot 4 inch ball of dork (shorter than Male!Spain), and has long hair a shade lighter than his that reaches to her hips. It's usually pulled up, but she lets it out when swimming, partying or sleeping. Her eyes vary from a pine-like color to a grassy color. Anita has a petit body but muscles and curves in the right places, having inherited the coveted "Spanish ass" which she puts to use when dancing. She's a large C-cup, a few sizes away from a D. Small, nimble feet but very long fingers and large palms. A few scars here and there and same skin tone as Antonio.
Anita is exactly what you'd expect from a Spanish woman. She's very social, polite, and has a friendly aura. Her history wasn't always the kindest, but she tries to fix the future by being so much kinder than her past. Actually pretty old, she sometimes pulls a 'ignore the atmosphere' move which can lead her to say or do brash things or come off as insensitive, though she isn't really like that. Children love her and she loves children, as well as animals, all in all a sweet, well-rounded woman. Religiously, she's a Catholic, but not as religious as she used to be, sometimes she'll go to mass and other times she won't. To be honest, she's not all that sure on her ticket to heaven anyway, if countries can even do that. Highly family oriented, and quite the romantic.
