Zamoros, officially the Colorado Republic of Zamoros (Veleazan: Colorado República de Zamoros), is a country in South Vestrim, bordered by Utamucanee to the east, the nation's only land border, the Columbian Sea in the south and it shares a maritime border with the UVSS to the north, Seda Dorada to the east, and the island of Koningsland to the southeast. It has a population of around 21 million in a land area of TBA. An estimated 3,921,049 people live in the capital and largest city, La Isabella with a further 4 million people living in the metropolitan area of the city.
The sovereign state of Seda Dorada is a lower-middle-income representative democratic republic with a developing economy that is highly dependent on commodities, namely natural resources and agricultural products, with rumoured resources of untapped petroleum on its extremities. It is governed as a democratic semi-presidential republic. One of the few megadiverse countries in the world, Seda Dorada hosts many endemic plants and animals.
The area of modern Zamoros once formed the border furthest extent of the Utamuc Confederation. Most of the country was conquered by Veleaz in the 16th century, becoming part of the viceroyalty of New Velacruz, along with the neighbouring region of Seda Dorado. Following a series of disputes between New Velacruz and Veleaz on the subject of taxes, the region of Zamoros rebelled against their Veleazan colonisers, beginning the two-year long Colorado War, which would lead to the defeat of the rebels and the dissolution of New Velacruz. Initially placed under the absolute control of Veleaz for the next decade, Zamoros then attained independence as a dominion of the Veleazan empire in 1756, and attained full independence on the 10th of January in 1919 As the Veleazan government severed all constitutional ties with it's dominions before it's collapse to the communist Red Guards. And since the overthrow of the old regime in Veleaz has been home to the Veleazan Monarhcy.
Internally, Zamoros has been facing issues with government corruption since the early 1980s, following the disposal of Caudillo Rafael Moreno, leading to numerous Presidential candidates being disqualified on account of corruption. Other challenges facing the country in its attempts to improve the economy by increasing foreign investment include a poor infrastructure and a need to improve public sector efficiency.
