San Salvador (Creeperian Spanish: for Holy Savior, officially known as Capital y Ciudad Nacional de Jesús Cristo, el San Salvador del Mundo, Creeperian Spanish for National Capital and City of Jesus Christ, the Holy Savior of the World) is the capital and most populous city Creeperopolis and the department of San Salvador. It is the political, cultural, educational, financial, and military center of the country. The city proper has an estimated 4 million people, while the San Salvador metropolitan area, covering the entire department of San Salvador, consists of over 49 million people, making San Salvador to most populous city on Terraconserva, surpassing second place, Ankarabad, by 4 million people.

The Imperial Palace of San Salvador, the Emperor of Creeperopolis' residence, is contained within the city's metropolitan area. San Salvador also contained the seat of the Council of Mayors and Council of Senators until both were abolished in 2019 and 2020, respectively. The city is currently the seat of the Creeperian National Military Tribunal and was formerly the seat of the Supreme Court and High Court until 1778 and 1949, respectively. San Salvador is governed by a Mayor who formerly was automatically the Chief Mayor, and later the Chief Senator. The incumbent Mayor is Jeremías Dueñas Cañas of the Creeperian Initiative and he has been serving as mayor since 9 February 2020.

San Salvador is located in the San Salvador Valley surrounded by the San Salvador Range, the San Luís Range, and Lake San Salvador. The city is located near two volcanoes, the San Salvador Volcano and the San Luís Volcano. The San Salvador and Asambio Rivers flow through the center of the city, emptying into Lake Zapatista in the south of the city. The city, and department, border the departments of San Luís, San Salvador del Norte, Santa Ana, Senvar, and Zapatista, and it also borders the State of the Church, a Creeperian client state that is the capital of the Creeperian Catholic Church. The city is encompassed by the Catholic Archdiocese of San Salvador. The San Salvador metropolitan area contains Creeperopolis' largest church, the Cathedral of Christ the King, following San Pedro's Basilica in the State of the Church, near central San Salvador.

The city was founded in 1412 by King Miguel III and it was incorporated as a city in 1443. San Salvador only became the capital of Creeperopolis in 1780, two years after the 1778 Creeperian coup d'état on the decree of Emperor Manuel III. The title of capital of Creeperopolis was challenged during the Creeperian Civil War by the National Council for Peace and Order who declared their permanent capital in Adolfosburg, the second most populous city in Creeperopolis. The city underwent a three year-long siege from 1946 to 1949, and following the civil war, the city's status of capital of Creeperopolis was secured by the Catholic Imperial Restoration Council. Since 1949, many coups and coup attempts have occurred in the city, most recently, the coup attempt in February 2020.

Etymology

The name San Salvador translates from Creeperian Spanish as "Holy Savior" or erroneously as "Saint Savior," in reference to Jesús Cristo, a holy figure and the Messiah in Christianity. The official name of the city, Capital y Ciudad Nacional de Jesús Cristo, el San Salvador del Mundo, translates as "National Capital and City of Jesus Christ, the Holy Savior of the World," in reference to the aforementioned Jesús Cristo and the fact that the city is the capital city and the largest city of Creeperopolis.

History

Pre-capital status

In 1412, King Miguel III expanded the territories of Creeperopolis west, accomplishing what King Miguel I had aspired to do in the mid-1360s before he died as his campaign west began. In his expedition, he established the Principality of San Salvador as a Creeperian client state west of the kingdom's domain and south of Lake San Salvador. Miguel III established a city on the coast of Lake Zapatista at the mouth of the Asambio River and named the city Ciudad de Jesús Cristo, el San Salvador del Mundo, translated as City of Jesus Christ, the Holy Savior of the World. The city became the capital of the principality when it was established and its first Mayor was Antonio Herrera Rebollo.

Ruins of the original settlement of San Salvador, destroyed by an earthquake in 1488.

From 1440 to 1443, the Creeperian Peasants' War ravaged the country, and as a part of the peace treaty, the Principality of San Salvador was annexed by Creeperopolis. Following the annexation, Miguel III expressed his desire to make the city the capital city of the kingdom, but was assassinated along with other members of the royal family on 1 January 1445 by Pánfilo Kassandro Rodríguez and thirty other co-conspirators in Salvador. His successor, Manuel II, abandoned any plans to make the city Miguel III founded as the national capital, but he did unofficially shorten the name to simply San Salvador for practical purposes.

The original settlement of San Salvador was destroyed in an earthquake in 1488, toppling practically every building in the settlement. As a result of the destruction caused by the earthquake, which is currently estimated to have been a magnitude 8.6 earthquake, the city was abandoned and King Miguel IV had the settlement relocated north along the banks of the San Salvador River, approximately in the center of the modern-day department. From that settlement emerged the modern-day city of San Salvador. In 1492, Miguel IV had a royal palace built in the city, which still stands today as the Old San Salvador Royal Palace located along the banks of the San Salvador River near the center of the city.

In 1565, the Surian Revolutions of 1565 lead to the establishment of the Parliament of Creeperopolis and elections were held to elect members to Parliament. The Conservative Party won a majority of the seats with the Liberal Party winning only a minority of the seats. In 1565, several Conservatives and Liberals wanted to select a new capital for the country to symbolize the coming of a new era for Creeperopolis. Many Conservatives wished to make keep Salvador as the capital, but a minority of Conservatives wanted to make San Salvador the capital; meanwhile, the Liberals wanted to make Adolfosburg the capital. Arguments that San Salvador not having ocean access swayed the Conservatives that supported San Salvador to continue to support Salvador, and the city remained the capital as the majority voted in favor of Salvador over Adolfosburg.

From 1565 to 1729, the city was mostly ignored by the Parliament, even as the population reached two million in 1725, the first Creeperian city since Salvador in 1511 to do so. In 1729, King Carlos III attempted to overthrow the Parliament, but the attempt failed and the monarchy was abolished; the Republic of Creeperopolis was established by Prime Minister Orlando Moreno Hidalgo on 13 August 1729. Conservatives knew that Moreno Hidalgo would move the capital to Adolfosburg, and so they pleaded with him to not do so, or compromise by moving it to San Salvador. Moreno Hidalgo refused and moved the capital to Adolfosburg on 1 September 1729. The Republic was short-lived as it fell in the People's Revolution of 13 September 1730, leading to the restoration of the monarchy under King Adolfo II on 15 September 1730.

When the Republic fell, Conservatives wanted to move the capital back to Salvador, and Moreno Hidalgo accepted and had the capital returned to Salvador, however, the capital returned to Adolfosburg in 1732. Moreno Hidalgo committed suicide 1 November 1749 as a result of backlash from the Guazatancillo Affair when the Captaincy General of the San Carlos Islands was sold to Xusma and the threat of an impeachment and criminal trial. As a result, Francisco López Yagüe became Prime Minister and popularity of the Liberal party fell, leading to the Conservatives gaining a majority in the 1750 general election. The capital was moved back to Salvador by Prime Minister Salvador Funes Tafalla in 1750, but a larger minority of Conservatives wanted to move it to San Salvador. The capital returned to Adolfosburg in 1765 with the election of López Yagüe as Prime Minister for a second term. He died in 1766, however, and was succeeded by Fernando Moreno Juderías, but the capital remained in Adolfosburg.

On 4 July 1771, King Manuel III attempted to overthrow the Parliament like Carlos III had attempted to do in 1729, but this time, the attempt at a self coup was successful. Moreno Juderías was executed, as was the entire Liberal caucus in the Parliament, while the Conservative politicians were spared. Conservatives urged Manuel III to return the capital to Salvador, which he did, and hope for San Salvador to become the capital seemed dead. The Supreme Court remained in existence in San Salvador and continue to impede on Manuel III's actions, and so in 1778, he dissolved the court and proclaimed himself Emperor of Creeperopolis. He decreed that he would move the capital away from Salvador and moved the capital to La'Victoria, the former capital city of the Caliphate of Deltino from 875AD until 1326, when it was known as Almadinat Almuqadasa, meaning "The Sacred City". The move was opposed by many, and in 1780, Miguel III announced that he would make San Salvador his new capital, and in doing so, he changed the name to the modern name it has today: Capital y Ciudad Nacional de Jesús Cristo, el San Salvador del Mundo. In 1783, Manuel III completed the construction of the San Salvador Imperial Palace. The construction of the palace seriously strained the Creeperian economy which escalated tensions between the populace and the government.

Capital of Creeperopolis

The proclamation of Manuel IV as Emperor of Creeperopolis in the San Salvador Imperial Palace.

Manuel III died in 1783, and immediately, a succession crisis began between supporters of his two sons. Both Manuel IV and Salvador III declared themselves to be the legitimate Emperor of Creeperopolis, stemming from an argument on who was the older twin as they were born on the same day, but no record survived on who was actually born first. The dispute lead to a war of succession that lasted nearly seven years from 1783 until 1790. During the war, the population generally supported Manuel IV in opposition of Salvador III, partly as a result of the bankruptcy the building of the Imperial Palace caused the country. San Salvador was seen as the most important city of the nation and a battle occurred at the start of the war over control of the city which ended in a Manuelist victory. After fleeing the city, Salvador III and the Salvadorists declared Adolfosburg as their "temporary capital" while San Salvador was held by the Manuelists. A second attempt to capture the city in 1788 failed when the army sent to siege the city was ambushed by the Manuelists and its leader, Augusto Cabañeras Arámburu, was executed. When Salvador III died in 1790, the war ended and San Salvador was solidified as the capital of Creeperopolis beginning the period of Creeperian history known as the Manuelisto.

In 1833, the city was the site of the Revolution of 1833 lead by Adolfo III, the grandson of Salvador III and grandnephew of Manuel IV. He was accompanied by Miguel Cabañeras Gutiérrez, the son of Cabañeras Arámburu. The revolution witnessed Adolfo III's soldiers enter San Salvador and slay the royal family in the Imperial Palace. He assumed power as Emperor on 14 June 1833, beginning the period of Creeperian history known as the Adolfisto. Under Adolfo III, San Salvador became the most important city of Creeperopolis and solidified itself as the most important city in Sur. The city also reached a population of ten million people in 1883, partly as a result of him decreeing that the cities of Salvador, Adolfosburg, and San Salvador encompass their entire departments, artificially inflating the populations of the cities. Adolfo III died on 1 December 1887 and his successor, Maximiliano II, allowed the establishment of a Second Parliament which took session on 31 December 1887 with a National Liberal Party majority. Instead of moving the capital to Salvador or Adolfosburg, the Parliament agreed that San Salvador would remain the capital and passed the National Capital Act that established that precedence.

The city faced an attempt at revolution in 1923 with the Christmas Putsch on 25 December 1923 staged by Carlos Hernández Videla and the Creeperian Pro-Fatherland Front who sought a Fascist revolution. The revolution was put down by Prime Minister Antonio Sáenz Heredia. On 2 January 1933, Emperor Adolfo IV died, sparking a second succession crisis between his sons Miguel VII and Romero I. The engagement known as the San Salvador del Norte Incident began the Creeperian Civil War that lasted from 1933 until 1949. The civil war was the deadliest war, not only in Creeperian history, but world history. The civil war arrived to the city of San Salvador in 1946 when the National Council for Peace and Order began the Siege of San Salvador, the deadliest military engagement in not only in Creeperian history, but world history. The siege witnessed the deaths of over four million people and ended in a victory for the Catholic Imperial Restoration Council in 1949.

Following the civil war, San Salvador was again solidified as the capital of Creeperopolis, as the Miguelists proclaimed that they would revert the capital to Adolfosburg. San Salvador reached a population of twenty million people in 1959 after losing four million during the siege. In 1976, a coup d'état was attempted against Emperor Romero II which ended in failure and the deaths of Sergio Arellano Stark and Manuel Contreras Sepúlveda, the coup's leaders. The coup did succeed, however, in assassinating the Minister of Defense, Alfonso Cabañeras Moreno, who was succeeded by Emmanuel Cabañeras Videla.

On 18 June 2003, the city came under attack by the Creeperian Armed Forces who moved in to oust Emperor Alfonso VI. The coup succeeded and his son ascended to the throne as Emperor Alexander II. The coup marked the end of the Alfonsisto, a period of totalitarian rule from 1999 until 2003. Alexander II was almost assassinated on 18 June 2013 in a bombing organized by Jacobo Graciani Juderías and again on 13 August 2019 in a shooting organized by the Senvarian Liberation Front. The city most recently came under attack during the 2020 Creeperian coup d'état attempt when the Revolutionary Government Junta for Creeperian Reorganization and the Free Creeperian Army attempted to overthrow Minister of Defense Augusto Cabañeras Gutiérrez in February 2020. The coup failed in its goals but the coup conspirators did manage to assassinate Martín Gutiérrez Sánchez, the Chief Senator of Creeperopolis and the Mayor of San Salvador. Since the coup, the city has recovered.

Geology

Creeperopolis is one of the most earthquake-prone countries on the planet. Creeperopolis experiences hundreds to thousands of earthquakes every year, but only two to three are serious on average per year. Creeperopolis experienced the world's largest earthquake in recorded history when a magnitude 10.3 earthquake shook the city of San Salvador in 1986. Other severe earthquakes to hit the city occurred in 1488, 1576, 1659, 1798, 1839, 1854, 1873, 1880, 1917 1919, 1965, 1982, 2001, and 2005.

Topography

The city of San Salvador is mostly contained inside of the San Salvador Valley. The valley is bounded to the north by Lake San Salvador, to the east by Lake Zapatista and the San Luísian Range, to the south by the San Salvador Volcano and the San Salvador River, and to the west by the Santa Anan Range. The average elevation of the city is 3,231 feet (985 meters) and the terrain is generally flat.

Government

Administrative regions

The city of San Salvador officially encompasses the entire department of San Salvador and has since 1883. In practicality, the department has fourteen cities that officially make up the city. The cities are Bautista, Denilla, Escuinbulco, La'Mirada, Munea, Nuevo San Salvador, Old San Salvador, Pasadena, Rariomo, San Salvador, South Serrada, Terrarote, Xaibil, and Yorisenti. The most important and most notable parts of San Salvador are in San Salvador, Pasadena, Bautista, and Old San Salvador. Each city serves as an administrative region of the city, and all territory not a part of one of the fourteen cities is administered by San Salvador proper.

Demographics

Ethnicity

Ethnic make up of San Salvador.

  Creeperans (88.48%)
  Other (11.52%)

San Salvador has a total population of 49,120,404 as of 2020, although San Salvador proper only has a population of 8,928,184, with the official city limits inflating its actual population. The city is one of the most diverse in terms of ethnicity and religion in the entire country and it is described as a "strong economic pull with many opportunities for minorities in the nation."

Creeperans make up the vast majority of the population of San Salvador making up 88.48% of the population at a total of 42,564,458 people. In Creeperopolis, Creeperans compose around 88% of the total population, and that statistic is reflected in the ethnic composition of San Salvador with Creeperans accounting for around 88% of the population. Essentially all Creeperans are Creeperian Catholics and speak Creeperian Spanish. Creeperian culture dominates the city and many minority groups in the city have adopted Creeperian customs and traditions, however, many minorities retain their cultures and customs resulting in areas of San Salvador being dominated by certain ethnic groups.

Minorities of San Salvador.

  Castillianans (37.86%)
  Atlántidans (21.66%)
  Salvadorans (13.77%)
  Quebecshirites (13.31%)
  Salisfordians (7.71%)
  Lyoans (3.10%)
  Rakeoians (2.29%)
  Xussmans (0.23%)
  Paleocacherians (0.06%)

Castillianans compose the largest minority in San Salvador accounting for 5.05% of the population at a total of 2,481,392 people. The vast majority of Castillianans in the city are the descendants of those who arrived between 1887 and 1933 as a result of business opportunities in Creeperopolis as they were much better than those in Castilliano at the time. Others arrived following the annexation of Castilliano by Creeperopolis in 1949 or as refugees fleeing from the Castillianan Insurgency that has been raging in western Creeperopolis since 1980. The Atlántidans, who compose 2.89% of the population at 1,420,284 people, are there as a result of similar circumstances as the Castillianans, arriving in the city as a result of business opportunities and the annexation of Atlántida in 1949. Salvadorans account for 1.84% of the population at a total of 902,483 inhabitants, most arriving for the same reasons as the Castillianans and Atlántidans: business opportunities and as a result of the Salvadoran War (1933–1935), the 1956 Salvadoran Revolution, and the 1976 Salvadoran Crisis. Virtually all Castillianans, Atlántidans, and Salvadorans are Creeperian Catholic, while each group is fluent in both Creeperian Spanish along with their own dialect of Spanish. These three ethnic groups are all considered similar to Creeperans and account for nearly 75% of the minority population of the city and the groups are evenly spread out across the city.

The largest "foreign" minority in the city are the Quebecshirites who compose 1.78% of the population at 872,482 inhabitants. Most to all of the Quebecshirites in the city live in Terrarote along the coast, making it one of the wealthiest parts of San Salvador. The standard of living in the Quebecshirite portion of Terrarote are considered to be "the best in all of San Salvador" which are claimed to only be rivaled by Puerto Francisco. The Quebecshirites of San Salvador live in the city as a result of the Quebecshirite diaspora from Puerto Francisco which was a Quebecshirite colony and trading city from 1417 to 1611 resulting in a large Quebecshirite population in the city. Most Quebecshirites are agnostics and speak both Creeperian Spanish and Quebecshirite. The Quebecshirite newspaper from Puerto Francisco, Poste du Port, is the most popular among the Quebecshirite population of San Salvador and many had sympathies of Puerto Francisco during the Franciscan Summer of 2005, even holding demonstrations in San Salvador to show their support.

Salisfordians account for 1.03% of the population at 505,292 people. Most Salisfordians live in Nuevo San Salvador as it is described as the "most similar part of San Salvador to Salisford." Most to all Salisfordians in San Salvador arrived as a result of the Salisfordian Revolution that lasted from 1782 to 1790. Although most returned to Salisford once the revolution ended, some stayed behind and their descendants are those who reside in the city today. According to professor Orlando Pareja Palau of Antonio José Sáenz Heredia University in San Romero, the Salisfordians are "culturally very conservative, heavily pro-monarchy, and extremely religious." Many Salisfordians present during the Creeperian Civil War fought for the Romerists and served under the 2nd Army protecting the Quebecshirite sector of the city during the Siege of San Salvador, as their own sector did not come under attack by the Miguelists. Most Salisfordians are fluent in both Creeperian Spanish and Salisfordian and practice Salforti Catholicism, a sect of Creeperian Catholicism.

Lyoans make up 0.41% of the population at 203,248 inhabitants. The Lyoans are spread out across the cities of Escuinbulco, Xaibil, and Yorisenti. The first Lyoans appeared in the city as refugees of the Lyoan Imperial Wars that spanned from 1785 to 1797, although most settled in San Salvador del Norte instead of San Salvador due to the precarious situation of the city during that period. The Lyoans mostly moved to San Salvador during the 1830s and 1840s with the insistence of Adolfo III. More Lyoan refugees arrived as a result of the Lyoan Revolution of 1967 and the First (1998–2003) and Second Lyoan Civil Wars (2020), the Internal conflict in Lyoa (2003–2020), and the Lyoan conflict (2020–present). The Creeperian government's figure of 203,248 only accounts for ethnic Lyoans who are solely ethnically Lyoan, and does not account for the Creepero-Lyoan population of the city which is projected to be much larger. The vast majority of Lyoans are Creeperian Catholic, but 2% are Lyoan Protestant and most are fluent in both Creeperian Spanish and Lyoan.

Xussmans compose barely 0.03% of the population at only 15,032 inhabitants. Virtually all the Xussmans live in South Serrada and are descendants of Xussman volunteers for the Romerists during the Creeperian Civil War who most notably fought in the Battle of Serrada. Most are Xussman Orthodox with around 3% being Creeperian Catholic and 2% being Xussman Jews. Most are fluent in both Creeperian Spanish and Xussman. The San Carlos Islanders also reside in the same area of San Salvador. At only 1,105 people, the San Carlos Islanders do not even register as 0.01% of the population, making them the smallest minority group in the city. Most are either Creepero-Islanders who returned to Creeperopolis after being born there as descendants of the Creeperans who settled the San Carlos Islands in the voyages of Cristóbal Colón Cámarillo of 1381 to 1388 or are Xussman-Islanders who traveled to Creeperopolis for business opportunities. Most, around 70%, are Creeperian Catholic while the remaining 30% are Xussman Orthodox, and most are fluent in both Creeperian Spanish and Xussman.

Rakeoians account for 0.31% of the total population at 150,344 inhabitants. Most Rakeoians in the city arrived as immigrants with a smaller number as refugees from the Rakeoian Civil War (1950–1955) and settled in Munea along the coast of Lake Zapatista and the banks of the Asambio River. Most Rakeoians are either Creeperian Catholic or agnostic and most are fluent in both Creeperian Spanish and Rakeoian. Paleocacherians account for the last 0.01% of the population numbering 4,284. Most Paleocacherians live in San Salvador proper and arrived for business incentives or because they have family in Creeperopolis, as there are 200,000 Creeperans in Paleocacher. Most Paleocacherians are Creeperian Catholic and are fluent in both Creeperian Spanish and Eusazy. Trace amounts of Senvarians live in the city, but there is no conclusive figure on how many, but it is estimated to be around 100 to 200.

Economy

The Emperor Adolfo III Tower is a symbol of the economic and financial importance of San Salvador.

San Salvador is considered to be Creeperopolis' most important financial center. According to the Globalization and Terraconserva Cities Research Network, San Salvador ranks as an "A" rank city in terms of "connectedness and importance to the world economy as well as how developed the cities themselves are," outranking Adolfosburg, Creeperopolis' second most important financial city which ranks as an "A- rank" according to the GaTC. A disproportionate amount of economic activity occurs in the city compares to other cities such as Adolfosburg, Salvador, and La'Libertad, since San Salvador is the capital city and the largest city of Creeperopolis.

Financial sector

The center of the city, San Salvador proper, is considered to be the financial sector of the city as it is the headquarters of many corporations and companies that operate within Creeperopolis. Most companies share buildings as their headquarters, but some have their own buildings dedicated as their headquarters, while some have a combination of both, occupying multiple buildings.
