The State of Fascist Spain (Spanish: Estado de la España Fascista) is a nation in southwestern Europe.
Spanish history dates back to the arrival of Iberians from Libya and Celts from Europe creating a unique tribal society in Spain. Colonization of its east coast by the Phoenicians, Greeks, Carthaginians, and eventually Romans, leading to the creation of powerful Visigothic successor state in the Roman tradition once Rome fell.
The Muslim Moors invaded in the early 700s, establishing an Emirate at Cordoba. The Moors would remain in Southern Spain until, in 1492 the united kingdoms of Aragon and Castille would repel the last of the Muslims.
Spain would then build a huge empire in the 1500s under the Habsburg family, but Spain ended up under the Bourbon family. With a war against the US in 1898, the Spanish Empire was officially over.
