* ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil4'' takes place in Spain, though Capcom keep denying it is Spain and saying that it [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial is a Castilian speaking country of Europe that is not Spain]], even though the in-game map places the village in the center of the Iberian Peninsula next to Madrid and the currency in the game is the Peseta, the former currency of Spain before it switched to the Euro. The Ganados all speak [[Main/{{Spexico}} Spanish with a Mexican accent]] and Luis Sera also speaks English with a Mexican accent despite being a former cop from Madrid.

Spain ('''Spanish:''' ''España''), officially known as the Kingdom of Spain ('''Spanish:''' ''Reino de España''), is a south-western European country inhabited by more than 40 million people, home of the ''Conquistadores'' and the first language of over 400 million people. The modern day Spanish trace their descent from many peoples, [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot including but not limited to]] [[UsefulNotes/AncientRome Romans]], [[UsefulNotes/AncientGreece Greeks]], [[UsefulNotes/PunicWars Phoenicians]], [[DarkAgeEurope Visigoths]], [[UsefulNotes/MoorishSpain Jews, and Muslims]], and the modern nation-state was formed with the union of the Kingdom of Castille and the Kingdom of Aragon in 1469 by the marriage of their respective monarchs, Queen Isabella and King Fernando and the siege of Granada in 1492, which would complete the ''Reconquista'' and end 700 years of Muslim rule in the Iberian Peninsula. Through the discovery and later conquest of the Western Hemisphere that same year, an empire grew and soon became the one of the most powerful on the planet until it's eventual decline over the course of the 1800's, culminating in [[UsefulNotes/SpanishAmericanWar a war]] with the UsefulNotes/UnitedStates at the very end of the century.[[note]]Although Spain still managed to keep some colonies in Africa until the 1970's.[[/note]] This, along with the failure of the conquest of Morocco and the feuds between political factions led to the [[BloodierAndGorier last and bloodiest]] of five [[UsefulNotes/SpanishCivilWar Civil Wars]]. [[UsefulNotes/FranciscoFranco The winner of the war ruled the country for no less than 36 years]] until his death, when the current Constitutional Monarchy now led by King Felipe VI was installed. Spain thus became one of the few examples in the modern day in which a monarchy is restored after being overthrown for quite some time, the other being UsefulNotes/{{Cambodia}} (to be fair, the Spanish monarchy never actually renounced their rights for their country when the Republicans took over in 1931).
