The United Provinces (Spanish: Provincias Unidas), also known as United Provinces of Central America (Spanish: Provincias Unidas del Centro de América), is a country in Central America. It borders Centroamerica to the north and Panama to the south.
Formed in 1931 as a response to growing extremist influences, the United Provinces of Central America is a union between the republics of Nicaragua and Costa Rica formed to protect their relatively stable democratic regimes. The young state's industry is split between US-controlled banana production and German dominated coffee production. In 1934 the state entered an alliance with Panama, mostly because the United States wanted to cut direct involvement in the area. It was also a means of making sure the preservation of the United Provinces was an, albeit indirect, US interest. Even if the state is split between American and German backed interest groups, the social problems of United Provinces pale in comparison with the socialist revolts and skirmishes the north has experienced. Now that US influence is fading many feel it is time for the United Provinces to decide whether they are satisfied with the inevitable domination of the domestic situation by Germany, or whether they should start to push for "a way of their own".
