History[edit | edit source]
Politics[edit | edit source]
The actual ruling political party is the Partido Monarquico, a strong centralist and right-winged political force. They have some strong metahuman-haters among them.
Second after them is the Partido Liberal, of Catalonian origin, which is a more economy-centered party.
A third strong party is the Partido Militar, which endorses the idea of initiating a military update with strong backing funds. Still, they've been losing influence since a high peak reached after Ibn Eisa's revival.
The Partido Verde, based out of Galicia, is an ecological party of a more left-winged tendency. Rumours have them related to Galician eco-terrorist cells.
Other minor parties exist, though they are less important.
The actual King is Juan Carlos II, an ogre, and his rule is being a tumultuous one since Spain is a strongly racist country. In fact, the country was near a civil war during 2064, when his father died and left both him and his brother (a human) with a possible access to the Crown; Spain's society divided, but after the disappearance of his brother (and with him, his claim to the throne), Juan Carlos II reached the Spanish throne and has been trying to develop his functions in the best way possible.
The political system is based on two separate chambers. The first, the Congreso, is the one that rules over all the country, and its Congressmen decide the laws that govern everyone. The President of the country is elected from this chamber. The second chamber, the Senado, is dedicated to the representation of all the different Autonomous Communities, each of which has four senators; this chamber is a centre of strong corporate (and underworld) intrigue, as they try to influence the government.
