Renewed Independence

Moroccan task-force heading to the Canaries

In 2014 Catalonia attempted to succeed from Spain after Scotland received independence from the United Kingdom. After a Spanish Campaign within Catalonia, the climatic Battle for Barcelona forced the government forces to retreat. After this UN Sanctions were placed upon Spain, and, along with Basque County, the Canaries declared independence. This was nearly cut short when a Spanish Task Force set off for the country, but, after a stand-off with the Moroccan Navy, was forced to turn back.
