La Tierra, which is translated as The Land in Spanish, is the national newspaper of Castilla and it's colonies. The newspaper used to be government owned, but it is now a joint-stock company, with the government owning 35% of its shares. The Castillan constitution has forbidden the newspaper from showing partisan or governmental bias unless both sides of the issue are addressed.
La Tierra was founded in the year of 1754 by the mayor to be the city of Metido's official newspaper. At first, it was just a small pamphlet that had a couple columns of local stories, some ads, and had a list of events that were to occur. In 1812, the King of Castilla decided that the giant Castillan Empire needed a national newspaper that would be used by all the colonies, and La Tierra was chosen to be the empire's national newspaper. Until 1913, La Tierra only displayed domestic news. International News was not introduced until the Khanzem War began. However, right after the war ended in 1918, the Dictator of Castilla known as Franco banned La Tierra from being published. It was not until several years after he died and the constitutional monarchy was re-established that La Tierra was re-established in 1975. Ever since, the newspaper has prospered and is still doing well today. La Tierra has been voted the number one newspaper for all Spanish speaking Penguins and Puffles for many decades and for decades to come. La Tierra is praised for it's trustworthy and informing articles.
