San Doloroso Map


Originally a Spanish colony, the country has a significant ethnic mix. The indigenous population rubs shoulders with people of European extraction and a sizeable minority descended from black slaves. There are also many people of mixed race. The official language is Spanish, although Escoria is also widely spoken and English is taught as a second language in some schools. The country is largely Roman Catholic, although the pre-Christian Escoria religion still has influence in some areas.
   

Plaza Mayor, Ausente

Conquered by the Spanish in the early Sixteenth Century, for a time San Doloroso formed part of the Viceroyalty of New Spain. It achieved independence from Europe in 1821 but for a time was part of the Federal Republic of Central America. It became fully independent in 1839 and adopted the name San Doloroso in tribute to the revolutionary leader Simón Doloroso.
