San Juan Diego (Sequoyan: ᎦᏚᎲᎢ ᎾᏍᎦᏅᏅᎠ ᏧᎸᏫᏍᏓᏁᏗ ᎤᏲᎱᏒ; transliteration: Gaduhvi Nasganvnva Tsulvwisdanedi Uyohusv) is a city in the marshlands of Eastern Sequoyah near the Creeperian–Sequoyan border. The city is the third largest city in Sequoyah after Angeles and Nueva Vegas.
San Juan Diego is a port city on the Senvarian Sea and it is also located in swamps near the [[Mary River (Sequoyah) Mary River]], making it a hub of trade in Sequoyah. Most of the city's wealth comes from internal maritime and river trade. The city also is home to several canning plants and factories, although none are as large as those located in Angeles. The city is a popular tourist destination for Sequoyans, who come to travel on the famous riverboats and enjoy the food and Creeperian culture. The city has a large population of Creeperans and Creeperian Catholics due to the city's close proximity to Creeperopolis and its history as a Creeperian-founded city.
The city of San Juan Diego is named after Juan Diego Ulloa y Batrés, a monk of the Creeperian Catholic Church who was martyred by the Caliphate of Deltino in 1232 during the Creeperian Crusade. The city was originally named simply "San Juan" by the Creeperian settlers who established the city, but at an unknown point after Creeperian rule of the city ended, the name was expanded to San Juan Diego.
In 1430, Creeperian Commander Gonzalo Vázquez Luján was commissioned by Creeperian King Miguel III to lead an expedition of Creeperian soldiers into modern-day Sequoyah with the intention of expanding Creeperian colonial ambitions south. His soldiers landed in modern-day Eastern Sequoyah in 1431, and there, he founded the Captaincy General of San Juan on 13 July 1431. He also established the San Juan Mission, and in effect, established the city of San Juan Diego, then known simply as San Juan. Vázquez Luján became the first Captain General of San Juan and also the first Mayor of San Juan.
The city is the headquarters of the Guarma Family, one of the largest organized crime families in Sequoyah, currently led by Emiliano Guarma Sonora. The Guarma Family operated a massive protection and extortion racket throughout the city, and the Guarma Family as funneled drugs from Creeperopolis into Sequoyah since 1951. The Guarma Family faces little prosecution due to the thorough corruption of the city's municipal authorities.
