Guatemala is often seen as one of the more friendly countries in Central America as of today. While he has had 3 regimes, a revolution, and a civil war in his entire life, that does not stop him from trying to change his life today.

Guatemala's Pre-Columbian era can be divided into the Preclassic period (from 2000 BC to 250 AD), the Classic period (250 to 900 AD) and the Postclassic period (900 to 1500 AD). From 2500 a. C. until the tenth century, The Mayas lived a flourishing era. However, it didn't last too much, since Spanish Empireball arrivied in the region.
Spanish Colonization Era
Spanish Empireball arrived in Guatemala in 1524, the year in which his first villa, Villa de Santiago, was also founded in honor of the apostle.
The Spanish domination of Guatemala lasted almost 300 years, during that time the country was administratively formed, and its main cities and its industries, like agricultural production. Cocoa, sugar cane, paint for textiles, wood, was the main work of this region, where architecture also developed in an important way.
The Emperor Agustin Iturbide, supported by the Central American population, incorporated the region into the Empire of Mexico, but in 1821, after several internal conflicts,a congress declared the independence of the Federation of United Provinces of Central America with other countryballs,which remained until 1838,when the Union dissolved.
In 1840, Guatemala gained its independence from UPCAball. In 1871 began that overthrew the government and began a liberal period that remained, with brief interruptions, until 1944 when form a revolution. The government of Justo Rufino Barrios, from 1873, was marked by anticlerical politics and economic development, based investment in large coffee producing properties. Its social policy, however, was detrimental to the Indians, who were subordinated to an almost servile labor regime.
From 1954 to 1996 USAball and his allies helped the Central American crisis with other countryballs of Central America from Communist Revolution throughout his civil war. Including in 1992 when Guatemala was received the Nobel Peace Prize with Rigoberta Menchú's native's movement, making the last countryball of Central American crisis. Like El Salvadorball, he has been suffered and survived by natural disasters such as Hurricane Stan in 2005. And since 2006, Guatemala has been resolving against impunity with a UNball's help.
