The Republic of San Theodoros is a country located in South America. It is bordered on the North by Surinam and French Guiana, on the West by the Republic of Nuevo Rico and on the South by Brazil.
The country was inhabited by two tribal nations, the Arumbayas and the Bibaros prior to the arrival of French explorers in 1624. The Kingdom of France attempted an expedition to the area in order to establish a colony for the commerce of Amazonian products to France. Eventually, the explorers faced strong hostility from the Portuguese who claimed that area as part of Brazil and saw a violation of the treaty of Tordesillas, signed in 1494 and establishing the division of the newly discovered lands in the Americas between Portugal and Spain. In 1643, the French returned and managed to establish a trading post in the region as part of a plan of exploration of Southern French Guiana.
In 1658, the Dutch seized most of the French territory in Guiana to establish a colony, including the region known as Saint Théodore, which will later become San Theodoros. The French returned in 1664 and started to colonize Southern French Guiana.
In 1667, the British seized the area, and following the Treaty of Breda in 1667, the area was given back to France.
In 1701, Spanish separatists fleeing Venezuela settled in the area and founded the city of Los Dopicos.
In 1763, the treaty of Paris deprived France of almost of her possessions in the Americas and the administration of the region of Saint Théodore was offered to the Spanish Crown, which renamed the area as the Captaincy of San Theodoros.
In the 1830s, San Theodoros became independent as a result of the rebellion of the Generalissimo José Olivaro (1805-1899). Endless rebellions in the 1840s until 1930s made San Theodoros have the most number of presidents in history.
Following the 1937 War opposing San Theodoros with its hostile neighboring country Nuevo Rico, San Theodoros gained supremacy over the Gran Chapo region, a desert area located in Western San Theodoros.
In 1959, in the context of the Cold War, young General Tapioca comes to power, and strongly supports the fascist state of Borduria, located in Western Europe, opposed to both communism and capitalism.
In 1972, the communist guerilla lead by General Ramón Alcazar attacks the capital city of Tapiocapolis and a communist regime is put in place in the country.
