    ¡Al combate, corred, bayameses!,

    Que la patria os contempla orgullosa; No temáis una muerte gloriosa, Que morir por la patria es vivir.

     
    — Himno de la Bayamesa

    Cubaball, officially the Castroist Republic of Cigaretteland Cubaball, is a cube countryball in the Weed Caribbean islands. The country is divided into 15 provinces, and 1 Special Municipality, including its capital Havanarawr, giving it a total area of 42,426 square miles, making it the largest countryball in the Caribbean. With a population of 11.32 million as of 2021, Cubaball ranks 82 in the most populous countryballs in the world.

    Since its revolution, Cuba has been suspended from OASball due to making links with Soviet Unionball. However, it does maintain membership in UNball like almost every other nation in the world, and is a founding member of ALBAball.

    Much like other socialist/communistballs, it does not do so well in regards to political or social freedom. However, Cubaball can into having a high human development index, unlike its fellow counterparts. Despite the trade embargo placed on it by USAball, it has done well in regards to education and health - even becoming the first to eradicate mother-to-child transmission of HIV and syphilis in 2015. Many other countries in the Caribbean tend to rely on Cubaball for aid.

    Its national day can be either October 10, for when it declared independence from Spainball in 1868, or July 26, for when it had its revolution in 1959.

    The most popular way to represent Cubaball is with the countryball using a cigar and a military cap, which would be a reference to the late Fidel Castro, the country's former president.

    History

    Inhabited by the Tainoball, Cubaball was not a colony of Spainball until discovery in 1511. Cubaball, the largest island of the Antilles, was originally divided into 29 chiefdoms. Many of these later became Spanish colonial cities, preserving their original names, such as Havana, Batabanó, Camagüey, Baracoa and Bayamo.

    It was known after Spanish arrival, on 1514 Spainball started to bulid it's settlements on the colonyball. Spain went on to enslave the Tainoballs in slve mines, although the "Laws of Burgos" revoked that, but then again rights didn't improve after that. Diego Velázquez de Cuéllar founded what was today Havanarawr evolved as a colonial settlement. Havanarawr gained city staus on 1519. A few years forward, 8ball was brought by Spainball as its slave. While as a slave, the effects 8ball would have was spreading the African based religion of Santería to Governorate of Cubaball.

    The Governorate of Cubaball became updated to a Captaincy by 1610, and Havanarawr became capital. The main goYurt²

    Throughout the 16th and 17th centuries, pirate and quite serious wars were waged for Cubaball between the Dutch Empireball, Great Britainball, Franceball and its owner Spainball. But even after the signing of peace in 1762, the British fleet invaded Cubaball and captured Havanarawr. To avoid losing its strategic position in the Caribbean, it handed over Spanish Floridaball to Britainball to keep it its special child. In the 1790's, many Haitiballs fled to Cubaball's clay to escape the violent revolution on Haitiball's clay. This is why Cubaball is part Haitian today and considered Haitiball to be "its Francophone sibling".

    Cubaball eventually despised slavery of the 8balls, the high taxes, and the corrupt system, so it revolted from Spainball's control in the "Guerra de los Diez Años". USAball didn't like Spainball growing slave plantations near its clay, and Dominican Republicball used to suffer a similar problem with Cubaball before it was independent, so they both supported Cubaball. The war failed in 1878, a decade later from where it started, but Spainball thought slavery should be banned in Cubaball like how it was in the remaining Spanish colonies, and it was in 1886.

    Cubaball was still unhappy, and revolted again in 1895. USAball wanted control over Cubaball´s clay for a long time, so it was willing to help the Cuban rebels. So, USAball blamed the Maine incident on Spainball starting the Spanish-American War. Cuba, together with it sibing and its new ally, kicked Spainball's ass in that war. USAball who now has parent custody, tried it's best to raise Cubaball as it's puppet in the next few years to server its capitalist American ideals. Cubaball also signed a treaty with its parent that gave it access to Guantánamo Bay. The first half of the twentieth century was marked by the decline of Cuba on the world stage. Presidents, dictators and rulers changed like gloves, and Cubaball itself tolerated US invasions of its territory. As a result of all this lawlessness, Cubaball moved closer to the United Statesball and became a paradise for the mafia, gambling rich and "sinful dealings."

    Cubaball's hate of fascism lead to it declaring war on Nazi Germanyball and Empire of Japanball in 1941.

    In 1952, Fulgencio Batista took power with a military coup. Under his rule, the economy was of great but 1/3 of the Cubaballs were of very poor. Fulgencio was also responsible for many deaths in the country. Then in 1959, The Cuban revolution began when a young Cubaball went on its revolution that things should change, and thats where the famous Fidel Castro kicked out Fulgencio Batista, who went to exile in Portugalball and later Spainball. Cubaball went up to its adoptive parent and said "FUCK CAPITALISM" and moved out of USAball's house into Soviet Unionball's home. Soviet Unionball then gave Cubaball some free nukes to scare away American invaders which pissed off USAball fearing that the nukes would obliterate even the White House and 54 years later they became friends again.

    The communist revolutionary Castro showed great improvement in the social fields during his 53 years of communist rule, reducing the illiteracy rate, implementing a universal public health system and decreasing the infant mortality rate. Between 1960 and 1990, Cubaball supported many socialist countries and communist movements in Latin America and Africa. Cubaball was almost the main ally of the Soviet Unionball, but perestroika and the collapse of the "Soviet Empire" led to a rapid decline in the country's economy and ambitions. Many predicted the imminent fall of the Castro regime to Cubaball, which, surprisingly, unlike the regimes of many other countries of the Soviet bloc, did not happen. Despite this, with the death of his great friend, the communist regime lives a very delicate economic situation: the Special Period, his oil disappeared and the time they had electric light was so short that, instead of talking about blackouts, they talked about alumbrones. (“Accessions”). Even cats went hunting to eat. In the 2000s, Cubaball was already in a more or less stable state.

    In 2015, USAball re-established diplomatic relations with it.

    Cubaballs's best friends are the Bolivarian Alliance for the Americas, but many countryballs in said alliance are as troubled as it.

    Cubaball is also very sad over Fidel Castro's passing in 2016. Cubaball also closed its borders.

    Since the end of 2018, Cubaball, which throughout the American embargo has suffered a series of economic crises, has faced a widespread shortage of food and hygiene products (such as soap and toothpaste), which has worsened in recent months.

    Raul Castro has recently stepped down as first secretary of the communist party from April 19th 2021.

    On July 11, 2021 there were quite strong protests due to the "democratic" group MSI (San Isidro Movement), the Cuban government decided to detain many of their influencers in their homes. Obviously, this situation caused many protests against the Cuban government currently presided over by Miguel Diáz-Canel, causing some fights, stone throwing, vandalism and violence by some protesters. The protests caused by the MSI call for the end of the Cuban government (which they recognize as a communist dictatorship) shouting "LONG LIVE CUBA LIBRE" and are supported by USAball and several countries of European Unionball in their fight against the government. On the other hand, websites in Cubaball such as "EcuRed" have branded the MSI as "anti-Cuban", "provocative" and "disrespectful" The Cuban protests were brutally crushed by the security forces by August 2021.

    Flag Colors

    The flag of Cuba has five stripes each alternating between blue and white and a red equilateral triangle on the left side with a five-pointed star. Some might argue that Cuba's flag was inspired by USAball's flag, but others believe it to be an idea from Narciso López, one of the main liberators of Cuba from Spain.
