Gulapada is an island colony of Castilla. It is located between Mccoon Island and Caltexico, and is known for being a tropical island getaway.

History[edit]

Gulapada was first inhabited by the Mayo penguins from Caltexico around 250 B.C. It was home to many pyramids and ancient art, but when the Mayo civilization fell, many small indegenious kingdoms formed, and lasted for several centuries. In 1519, the Castillans discovered Gulapada and conquered it through warfare and by exposing the natives to the Laughing plague, which killed off many of the natives. The Plague wiped out more penguins than the warfare, and soon Gulapada became Castillan territory for good.

Unfortunately, Gulapada was not abundant in gold or silver, so it had to resolve on agricultural production. Gulapada soon produced sugar cane, cocoa, and indigo dye for trade, and helped Castilla gain profit. A strong social pyramid was developed, where natives were subject to being farm laborers while Castillans and Gulapadans of mixed Castillan-Mayo descent were given higher privileges such as being plantation owners, overseers, politicians, and businessmen.

Civil war[edit]

In 1960, a large group of indigenous penguins and puffles decided to rebel against the system, calling for social and political equality. They hoped to pursue better economic opportunities so that they could escape poverty. Although their dreams were lofty and well supported among their fellow countrymen, the mestizo (mixed) Castillan-Native penguin class did not approve of their social rebellion, and retaliated with violence. Hence, a dangerous civil war ensued, and the peasants and the mestizos were caught in a battle for political supremacy on the island. At this point, Gulapada's colonial army, run by several Gulapadan mestizos, called in national assistance from the Castillan mainland. However, at this point, the Castillan Congress was not very fond of the war and was divided between the two causes.

Colonies soon began pitting against each other when Cuadra joined forces with the peasants while Parhentina and Frio were persuaded to ally with the Gulapadan colonial army after finding out that a growing faction of peasants were adopting communism. Although these colonies allied with sides in the war, they typically didn't send troops but rather sent supplies and materials to each faction. The war was brutal, as it ended up deleting 200,000 citizens. In the end, the war terminated with a peace treaty when the Castillan mainland army decided to step in and solve the issue. The agreement was made that the peasant rebel army would be converted into a legal political party that would hold seats in Gulapada's colonial legislature. Ever since, equality and political and economic re-establishment is currently being developed, though the war has made the colony into a poor area.

A rather sleepy colony, Gulapada finally came into importance in the Snoss-Castillan War in 2011, when the Castillans and the Snoss tried to fight over who would take Mccoon Island, the gateway to Gulapada.

Geography/Climate[edit]

Gulapada is a very mountainous nation with some rainforest and hostile desert in some areas. The rainforest area get heavy rains annually, which allows for the cultivation of tropical goods such as coffee, sugar cane, chocolate, mango, cassava, and papaya. Some areas of Gulapada have volcanoes, and earthquakes are known to happen here with frequency. Gulapada is located between Caltexico and Mccoon Island, and it is typically considered the "Gateway to Caltexico" and a few other small islands that surround it. The Gulepada Straits are large sand bars that are located between Mccoon Island and Gulapada.
