    Despacitoball Puerto Ricoball , officially the Commonwealth of Puerto Ricoball, which means "Rich Port" in Spanish Empire-icon.png Spanish, is an independent country unincorporated territory of USA-icon.png USAball living in the Caribbean. While it doesn't have any neighbours due to being an island, it is very close to its two siblings Cuba-icon.png Cubaball and Dominican-icon.png Dominican Republicball. The territory is divided into 78 municipalities (counties), including his capital San Juan-icon (Puerto Rico).png San Juanball located in the Northeast, giving it a total area of 3,515 square miles. As of 2018, it has a population of about 3.195 million inhabitants and decreasing due to the large amounts of Puerto Ricoballs moving to USA-icon.png USAball's mainland clay (especially Texas-icon.png US Georgia-icon.png Florida-icon.png these states) due to recent natural tragedies like Maria and Irma.

    Due to being a territory of USA-icon.png USAball, it cannot into any international organizations. However, it does host a few USA-icon.png American military bases, which help give NATO-icon.png NATOball influence in the Caribbean.

    Its national day is June 10th.

    Puerto Ricoball is usually very nice to anyone, but it gets very mad if it gets confused with Cuba-icon.png Cubaball. It can also get very cocky. It is also thinking more every day about returning to live with Spain-icon.png Spainball due to USA-icon.png USAball not letting it into America. Sometimes, it is of flirty. It also forgets it's not an independent nation...

    History

    Between 3000 and 2000 BCE the 3-icon.png Ortoiroid 3balls were the first people to inhabit Puerto Rico. In between 430 BCE and 1000 AD the Taino-icon.png Tainoball, Arawak-icon.png Arawakball and 3-icon.png Saladoid tribes inhabited the clay.

    In 1493 the Genovese captain Christopher Columbus-icon.png Christopher Columbus landed on the island. By 1550 many of the 3-icon.png 3ball natives had died. The Spanish Empire-icon.png Spanish Empireball finally annexed Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico was a key part of Spanish Empire-icon.png the Spanish empire. The island was a important military base. Its name wasn't always Puerto Rico. Before the Spanish came, it was called "Boriké" and then it was called San Juan Bautista and the capital was called Puerto Rico. Jealous of the name the capital had, he decided to switch it. However, it doesn't make sense for an archipelago to be called Puerto Rico as it means Rich Port. PuertoRico-icon.png Puerto Rico remained a part of Spain-icon.png Spainball long after the Napoleonic-icon.png Napoleonic invasion of Spain, which caused almost the entire Spanish Empire-icon.png Spanish Empire to collapse. Then USA-icon.png USAball went on a quick tour to Cuba-icon.png La Havana and the ship exploded. USA-icon.png USAball blamed Spain-icon.png Spainball because tensions were really high when it exploded and USA-icon.png USAball invaded Cuba-icon.png Cubaball, Philippines-icon.png Philippinesball and Puerto Ricoball. Puerto Ricoball, rebellious at the time, copied its look from Cuba-icon.png Cubaball to show support to the Cuban and Puerto Rican wars for independence.

    For 2 years Puerto Rico was controlled by the USA-icon (WW1soldier).png Ministry of War and USA-icon.png US generals, so USA-icon.png USAball gave them a civilian government. In 1917 they became USA-icon.png US citizens and since them a lot of the population is pushing for Statehood and in November the 3rd of 2020 Puerto Rico voted if to change it's status for the fifth time.
