San José Guayabal, officially the Constitutional Monarchy of San José Guayabal (Spanish: Monarquía Constitucional de San José Guayabal) is a country in the Inferiore Minore continent of the Esportiva region consisting of 18 Provinces, being all located on the mainland and surrounding archipelagos, not counting Overseas Territories as Sakhalin, Ratastan, Alianza Albos and Colonies like Paymina and Rossana and the South Pole region.
Being San José Guayabal a culturally diverse nation, inhabited by at least thirty ethnic minority groups and five other major ethnic groups, forming a bond of brotherhood between each group, givesto the nation a strong reputation of unity and brotherhood even in the most difficult moments. The ancestral heritage given by Spanish colonizers and a mixture of innovation and creativity have shown positive effects in this vibrant nation located in the southernmost corner of Esportiva. Boasting a high HDI and enjoying great equality, mainly caused by the implementation of a Welfare State.

Originally, San José Guayabal was inhabited by a tribe from the South Pole, which has been called "Eskimos" and which our country still live to this day, beginning more than 2,600 years before Christ. Eskimos settled in small communities on the shores of the south coast of the nation, developing solitarily without contact with most members of other ethnic groups. The economy was based on hunting and selling bearskins for the winter season, or the planting and harvesting of grapes or apples during the spring time. The system of government was nonexistent and remained so for a long time, where the Eskimos were the majority before a new ethnic group in the center of the country, which was the group of "Wára-Wára" who ended up being called "Native Guayabalenses.”
The Expansion of The Nation
Many centuries later, nothing changed regarding the ethnic background of the population, because the Eskimos maintained a social domain but now much stronger than ever through a central government called "Naalakkersueriaaseq" or simply "Naala", consisting of a governor who tended to meet the role of chief and spiritual guide of the nation. Note that they abandoned their nomadic practices and decided to establish around the "Great Lake" now called "Metropolitan Lake", about 230 km from what is now San Salvador, the capital.
We are going back to closest date to today, specifically in the 14th century BC, a new ethnic group came from the Northern regions which, specifically from Andarica, The Spaniards who colonized our country with the valorous mission of Explorer Luis Barbosa (Who’s considered as founder of the nation) and transformed it into an important cultural spot for Esportiva then. The discovery of new cities and new cultures was almost unstoppable, the isolated Eskimos decided to merge into a new society, full of opportunities for everybody. And that hasn’t stopped yet, because more groups came to stay in our nation, coming from the north the Finns, Swedes, Russians and Anglo-Saxons, creating a multicultural society in a big nation, who had a strong sense of unity and brotherhood since the early beginning despite the racial differences.
In the last 200 years, San José Guayabal has suffered drastic changes into his history and social system, being caused by political reasons, who led to three civil wars (1989, 2024, 2047) where the main factor was the wish of liberty and prosperity from a diverse but united nation with strong wishes of success in international issues as business, industries and more specially peace and freedom.
Today, San José Guayabal is a nation that is rising from the ruins by leaps and bounds after the most recent and devastating civil war that put a stop to the tyrannical communist regime of then President Miguel Serrano. In an industry dominated by petroleum and energy resources such as shale or subtraction of natural gas in conjunction with a strong and increasing momentum of the touristic industry and the micro technology based economy (Chips, micro-chips, etc.) are transforming the nation into what people have dreamed of, a country of advanced seeking for a better future and to overcome adversity in order to become more powerful and provide a better standard of life for its inhabitants.
San José Guayabal is a continental nation, located in the continent of Inferiore Minore, Esportiva. Having a great number of surrounding islands, an 85% of The Esportivan Antartic Territory, doing a great combination of climate and geographical features.
The continental area is very irregular, mountainous and a high number of volcanoes, being mountainous in the west, south-central, north-central and eastern containing long plains and steppes in the central area (also called "The Heart") of the nation, The Alpine Belt also called "Cordillera Del Fuego" runs from the border with Estope and Wednesday Evening in the far west to the border with Gregoryisgodistan in the east, having his highest point on the Pico de Santa Marta at 8,670 meters above sea level (28,437.60 feets), forming a branch towards the south coast of the nation. The eruptions are less frequent in recent years, the last eruption was 12 years ago and the possibilities of a new eruption event occur is very minimal. This has generated an abundance of rocky material from the process of cooling of the lava, a very popular material used for gardens and decoration or houses.
Notable exceptions to the mountainous terrain of San José Guayabal are the Central Valley and the Northern Steppe. "El Valle" is a flat land that does not exceed 600 meters above sea level and extends over much of the Lempa River; the soil is very fertile for growing grain and other agricultural products such as corn, beans, and sugarcane, and also is home of the biggest hydroelectric dams in the entire region of Esportiva.
The North Steppe is the most arid area of the territory, dominated by its large sand dunes, this region has very little rainfall throughout the year and extreme weather in the summer, fauna it’s minimal there except for scorpions and some lizards.
The climate of San Jose Guayabal is generally quite predictable because there are four distinct seasons being these winter (June 21 to September 20), spring (September 21 to December 20), summer (December 21 to March 20) and the autumn (March 21-June 20) while in Rossana (overseas colony) the condition is different because of its location in the northern hemisphere being the winter between December and March, spring between April and June, the summer between July and September while autumn is from October to December. It's very rare to see a non-corresponding to the station in our country climate, with stable climates for each season and very few flaws in the service of climate information in the news and newspapers because the monitoring systems of the climate and the almost obvious weather patterns.
The nation excels by the harsh winters that normally has during June to September, having the highest tempreatures at the range of 10°C, specially on the Isle of Meléndez and freezing temperatures below -50°C in zones like El Roblar or Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk or in the South Pole Region.
If we talk about natural phenomena, we can find three, the most catastrophic ones are the earthquakes, a very common event in the nation due to its volcanic activity and its location between two major tectonic plates, the Southern Plate and the Inferiore Plate. This makes our nation quite prone to seismic events place but do not panic. The nation has high construction standards regarding the prevention of seismic events and is mandatory that each building has evacuation plans which are placed in visible to make easier the evacuation besides making evacuation drills at least two times for year. Note that at least 45% of citizens are people trained to provide first aid, this being part of the given requirements to complete the Students’ Social Service, required for the graduation of students in the education system.
We now turn to other less lethal phenomena, as are the aurora australis and the migration of geese, spectacular events that attracts lots of people. The aurora australis is a phenomenon that occurs mainly from March to September, while maintaining an appropriate intensity to be seen until the end of December, usually can be seen throughout the country, including northern areas like El Roblar or Metapán. The migrating of geese occurs during September to December, from the Central Valley region they move to the South Pole, then head to the north of Esportiva. These spectacles often see lots of people witnessing the wonders of nature.
San José Guayabal is a predominantly religious nation since ancient times, presenting a wide variety of thoughts about divinity.
From the very beginning, on he epoch of the Eskimos, prevailed a kind of shamanism mixed with pagan rites in honor of the earth, moon and sun, entities of great importance to the Eskimos because of their dependence on agriculture and sun for planting and harvest of food and other goods for storage in the winter, which was worshiped by the moon and snow, who deserved rest and relaxation afforded to the Eskimos that time.
This Eskimo tradition of worshiping natural phenomena remained for more than 2500 years until the arrival of Spanish colonizers, who spread a new faith, Christianity in an easy way and without shedding innocent blood by religion. The Guayabalenses have been very receptive to the religion without falling into religious fundamentalism and fanaticism, this being a meeting point of unity and for society.
The Catholic branch of Christianity was the most professed in San José Guayabal to the arrival of the ethnic groups of Nordic origin like the Swedes and Finns who are predominantly Protestant, their influence on the people was so great that within two decades (1840- 1860) the percentage of Catholics dropped from 86% to 7%, and Protestantism dramatically increased to 89% of the population said to practice religion mainly based on the three pillars that characterizes San José Guayabal populace as a whole: Unity, Brotherhood and Passion.
Today the trend remains solid, the population is even more liberal than before in terms of tolerance creeds, admitting any theological thinking according to the Constitution of the Republic, severely condemning any act of censorship of religious expression or fundamentalism religious. Notably, church attendance has been increasing in the last seven years, bringing together a large part of the population; the missions of the churches typically perform community works across the nation or even international level people who need it most.
Because being a multicultural nation, many languages are found in San Jose Guayabal, 31 to be precise, of which only five are relevant in their social use and only two are used by the government. At least a basic knowledge of Spanish language is more than useful in our nation but not essential, because 68% of the population has declared Spanish as their first language and 85% admit to have sufficient knowledge of the language. There are also four more languages in which the population has knowledge such as English (spoken by 70% of the population, 12% as their mother tongue), Swedish (spoken by 35% of the population, 4% as mother tongue), Russian (spoken by 26% of the population, 7% as their mother tongue) and Finnish (spoken by 17% of the population, 3% as their mother tongue).
The people of San Jose Guayabal are known regionally for the effort they made to learn new languages, speaking on average three to four languages at an appropriate level for communications with different people, according to them this is essential because knowledge is acquired different cultures and helps to interact with more people in The Multiverse.
Food in San Jose Guayabal is very diverse, varying due to the presence of different ethnic groups that have imported their culinary culture to our nation, varying by region, and yes, there are dishes that are distinguished from others if we talk about popularity nationwide.
The typical dish par excellence of San José Guayabal are Pupusas, is a food made from mass shaped like circle, stuffed inside with fried beans, cheese, pork rind, squash, blackberry. This is often accompanied by vegetable tanning and ketchup. Other main courses are: Tray (Composed of roast beef with barbecue, rice, salad, soup and fries), Quesadillas, Coastal Chops (Cutlet, bathed with barbecue and served with shrimp), Croquettes (breaded meat, accompanied with piece of dough and rice) and Spaghetti. Among the salads are: Paisa salad (lettuce, avocado, omelet, egg, chicken, bacon and corn chips) and the “Mil Cumbres” salad (lettuce, tortilla croutons, chicken, tomato, corn and ranch dressing).
Eating habits in SJG tends to be foods with moderate calories, being mainly meat and some salads that are normally an accompaniment to the main course, where people normally waits for all to start to eat at the same, then they start to eat all at the same time the main course, as tradition, a toast is made by anyone at the table. It is considered impolite to leave food residue on dishes in case you are invited to a house to eat or social activities, is always appropriate offer to wash the dishes and glasses where you ate, this being a gesture of good education and thanks to the host (not always the person that is offered is done, is considered as a simple act of appreciation.)
The economy of San José Guayabal is a developed mixed economy with state-ownership in strategic areas of the economy. Although sensitive to global business cycles, the economy of San José Guayabal has shown robust growth since the start of the industrial era. Shipping has long been a support of Guayabal's export sector, but much of the Guayabalense economic growth has been fueled by an abundance of natural resources, including petroleum exploration and production, geotermical power, hydroelectric power, and natural gas. Agriculture and traditional heavy manufacturing have suffered relative decline compared to services and oil-related industries, and the public sector is among the largest in the world as a percentage of the overall gross domestic product. The country has a very high standard of living compared with other Esportivan countries, and a strongly integrated welfare system. The Guayabalense modern manufacturing and welfare system rely on a financial reserve produced by exploitation of natural resources, particularly on the South Pole Sea.
Guayabalenses enjoy one of the highest GDP per-capita in Esportiva and the fourth GDP (PPP) per-capita. Today, San José Guayabal ranks as one of the wealthiest countries in the world in monetary value, with the largest capital reserve per capita of any nation in Esportiva. According to the WA World Census, San José Guayabal is a net external creditor of debt. San José Guayabal managed after decades of constant progress through the rankings the best Human Development Index (HDI) of the region with a value of 92 The standard of living in San José Guayabal is among the highest in the Multiverse. Esportivan Union Foreign Policy Magazine ranks SJG the 97th among 104 nations in its Failed States Index for 2194, judging SJG to be one of the region's most well-functioning and stable countries. Based on continued oil and gas exports, coupled with a healthy economy and substantial accumulated wealth, San José Guayabal is expected to continue as among the richest countries in the world in the foreseeable future.
San José Guayabal is a heavy producer of renewable energy, first of all due to good resources in hydropower. Over 60% of the electricity production in mainland San José Guayabal is covered by hydropower plants. The total production of electricity from hydropower plants amounted to 896.9 TWh in 2195 There is also a large potential in wind power, offshore wind power and wave power, as well as production of bio-energy from wood. San José Guayabal has quite limited solar energy resources during the winter but the deficit is normally defeated during the large period of summer, but is one of the world's largest producers of solar grade silicon and silicon solar cells.
Guarantees of Origin, the system for Guarantees of Origin was implemented by the EU Renewable Energy Directive 2009/28/EC. In 2192 the average electricity consumption mix of a Guayabalense household was 45% renewable.
In 2195, Guayabal was the largest crude oil exporter in Esportiva (at 156Mt), and the 4th largest exporter of refined oil (at 104Mt). It was also the largest natural gas exporter of the region (at 144bcm), having significant gas reserves in the North Sea. San José Guayabal also possesses some of the world's largest potentially exploitable coal reserves (located under the Guayabalense continental shelf) on earth.
Three million barrels of oil adds 1.3 Mt of CO2 per day to the atmosphere as it is consumed, 866 Mt/year. Thus the global CO2 impact of San José Guayabal activities is significant. Much of the CO2 creation happens outside of Guayabalense borders, from Guayabalense fossil fuels.
In May 2169, SJG asserted sovereign rights over natural resources in its sector of the South Pole Sea. Exploration started on July 19, 2173, when "Viajero Océanico" drilled its first hole. Initial exploration was fruitless, until "Carguero del Sur" found oil on August 21, 2173. By the end of 2173, it was clear that there were large oil and gas reserves in the South Pole Sea. The first oil field was "Oro Negro", produced 427,442 barrels of crude in 2180. Since then, large natural gas reserves have also been discovered.
Against the backdrop of the 2171 Guayabalense referendum to join the Esportivan Union, the Guayabalense Ministry of Industry, headed by Ramiro Montesinos moved quickly to establish a national energy policy. SJG decided to stay out of international oil groups, keep its own energy prices in line with world markets, and spend the revenue—known as the "currency gift" in the Petroleum Fund of San José Guayabal. The Guayabalense government established its own oil company, Statoil, and awarded drilling and production rights to "Petróleos del Sur" and the newly formed "Henríquez y Cia S.A.de.C.V".
The South Pole Sea turned out to present many technological challenges for production and exploration, and Guayabalense companies invested in building capabilities to meet these challenges. A number of engineering and construction companies emerged from the remnants of the largely lost shipbuilding industry, creating centers of competence in San Miguel and the western suburbs of Rostov. Rostov also became the land-based staging area for the offshore drilling industry.
Law and Order
San José Guayabal uses a civil law system where laws are created and amended in Parliament and the system regulated through the Corte de Justicia. It consists of the Corte Suprema de Justicia of 19 permanent judges and a Chief Justice, appellate courts, city and district courts, and conciliation councils. The judiciary is independent of executive and legislative branches. While the Prime Minister nominates Supreme Court Justices for office, their nomination must be approved by Parliament and formally confirmed by the Monarch in the Council of State. Usually, judges attached to regular courts are formally appointed by the Monarch on the advice of the Prime Minister.
The Courts' strict and formal mission is to regulate the Guayabalense judicial system, interpret the Constitution, and as such implement the legislation adopted by Parliament. In its judicial reviews, it monitors the legislative and executive branches to ensure that they comply with provisions of enacted legislation.
The law is enforced in San José Guayabal by the Policía Nacional Civil. It is a Unified National Police Service made up of 60 Police Districts and several specialist agencies, such as Corte de Cuentas; and the Servicio de Investigación Criminal, each headed by a chief of police. The Police Service is headed by the National Police Directorate, which reports to the Ministry of Justice and the Police. The Police Directorate is headed by a National Police Commissioner. The only exception is the CAM whose head answers directly to the Ministry of Justice and the Police.
San José Guayabal abolished the death penalty for regular criminal acts in 2157. The legislature abolished the death penalty for high treason in war and war-crimes in 2172.
In general, the legal and institutional framework in San José Guayabal is characterised by a high degree of transparency, accountability and integrity, and the perception and the occurrence of corruption are very low. San José Guayabal has ratified all relevant international anti-corruption conventions, and its standards of implementation and enforcement of anti-corruption legislation are considered very high by many international anti-corruption working groups such as the ESAB. The Corte de Cuentas has proven to be an efficient, professional and independent unit with a strong capacity to investigate and prosecute corruption in San José Guayabal and abroad. However, there are some isolated cases showing that some municipalities have abused their position in public procurement processes.
Stunning and dramatic scenery and landscape is found throughout San José Guayabal. The South coast of San José Guayabal and the coast of northern SJG present some of the most visually impressive coastal sceneries in the world. the World Assembly has listed the Guayabalense fjords and islands as the world's top tourist attraction. The 2195 Environmental Performance Index put San José Guayabal in sixth place in Esportiva, based on the environmental performance of the country's policies.
In terms of structure, the Guayabalense economy is characterised by a large, knowledge-intensive and export-oriented smanufacturing sector; an increasing, but comparatively small, business service sector; and by international standards, a large public service sector. Large organisations, both in manufacturing and services, dominate the Guayabalense economy. High and medium-high technology manufacturing accounts for 8.7% of the GDP.
An estimated 34.7 million Guayabalense residents are employed and around a 42% of the workforce completed tertiary education. In terms of GDP per-hour-worked, San José Guayabal was the Esportiva's sixth highest in 2190 at US$41, compared to US$27 in Apox and US$35 in Yttribia. GDP per-hour-worked is growing 2.5% per year for the economy as a whole and the trade-terms-balanced productivity growth is 2%. According to the Esportivan Union, deregulation, globalisation, and technology sector growth have been key productivity drivers. San José Guayabal is a multiversal leader in privatised pensions and pension funding problems are relatively small compared to many other Esportivan countries. The limit of working time is 40 hours per week but at least the 65% of the employees in San José Guayabal works with a total amount of 35 hours per week without including the possibilities to have videoconferences due to work reasons in their homes, The Guayabalense government is seeking to reduce its costs through decreased sick leave hours and increased efficiency. Also is worth to point that at least the 12% of the national workforce performs some or all of their activities at home using different specialized servers for their work or using Viconfe the program created by the government for the videoconferences, or the working platform to do services or pay taxes or anything related to the work that might be reported to the Government via the Ministry of Finance with the program iWork.
San José Guayabal population was 52,148,570 people in September 2095. Guayabalenses are an ethnic Hispanic people though there are some people with Nordic ethnicity like Swedes, Finns, Norwegians and also Slavics like Russians. Since the mid 22nd century, San José Guayabal has attracted numerous immigrants from northern Inferiore, Northern Esportiva, and the equatorial zones of Esportiva. All of these groups speak many different languages and come from different cultures and religions.
As of 2095, an official study shows that 76% of the total population have at least one parent who was born in San José Guayabal. More than 7,822,286 individuals (15%) are immigrants and their descendants; there are 1,172,000 children of immigrants, born in San José Guayabal.
San José Guayabal was awarded first place according to the WA's Human Development Index (HDI) in Esportiva and 106th in the Multiverse for 2195. Poverty and infectious diseases dominated in SJG together with famines, and epidemics in the 2000s. From the 2150s improvements in public health occurred as a result of development in several areas such as social and living conditions, changes in disease and medical outbreaks, establishment of the health care system and emphasis on public health matters. Vaccination and increased treatment opportunities with antibiotics resulted in great improvements within the Guayabalense population. Improved hygiene and better nutrition were factors that contributed to improved health. The disease pattern in San José Guayabal changed from communicable diseases to non-communicable diseases and chronic diseases are not so common in the nation, considering that the deaths happen by old age by 69.5% and lost in wilderness with 21.6%.
The first antibiotic, penicillin, was introduced in the 2040s during the Communist Rule of San José Guayabal. These antibiotics were very powerful tools in preventing and treating childhood diseases. In the 2050 and 2080s many vaccines were developed and the childhood vaccination program grew rapidly. San José Guayabal gained control over almost all of the feared childhood diseases. Vaccines against measles (rubella) were introduced to the childhood immunization program in 1978. Rubella is dangerous to the fetus if the mother is affected during pregnancy. Today, all children are offered free vaccines which are voluntary. The coverage for most vaccines is high.
In the early 2150s AIDS surfaced as an unknown disease. San José Guayabal was early in preventing the transmission of HIV/AIDS in high-risk groups through the implementation of information campaigns. The HIV virus was later discovered and HIV tests became available from 1985.
New Challenges on Health Care
A wealthy economy makes it possible to buy tobacco, fast food, sweet drinks, sweets and even drugs, considering the almost non existant limitations of the Government in that matther, that few people had access to or could afford until after 2155. These days many people have desk jobs, cars, less demanding housework as well as indoor plumbing. Physical activity is decreasing; electronics, computers, social media, and the internet demand more of daily life. New living conditions such as these give rise to new challenges for public health. Only 55% percent of adults in San José Guayabal follow the common advice to be physically active for 150 minutes per week. Reduced physical activity increases the risk for overweight and obesity, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes. Despite that, it is believed that just 1 of every 10 persons in San José Guayabal could be in problems with overweight or obesity.
Education in San José Guayabal is mandatory for all children aged 6–18. The school year in San José Guayabal runs from the end of February to the beginning of November. The Winter Break from mid June to the beginning of July historically divides the Guayabalense school year into two terms. Presently, the second term begins in the beginning of July.
Organized education in San José Guayabal dates as far back as the Spanish Rule times. Shortly after San José Guayabal became an Overseas province of Spain in 1569, cathedral schools were constructed to educate priests in El Roblar, San Salvador, Loma Chata and Yucuaiquín, the city who has the oldest university in all the nation, the Universidad Católica de Yucuaiquín opened in 1572.
After the reformation of San José Guayabal in 1821, (After the Independence) the cathedral schools were turned into "Normal" schools, and it was made mandatory for all market towns to have such a school.
In 1856 training in reading was made compulsory for all children, but was not effective until some years later. In 1910, San José Guayabal introduced the Escuela del Pueblo (people's school), a primary school which became mandatory for 7 years in 1913 and 9 years in 1922. In the 1970s and 1980s, the Escuela del Pueblo was abolished, and the Escuela del Fundamento (foundation school) was introduced.
The Guayabalense school system can be divided into three parts: Elementary school (Escuela Elemental, ages 6-13), lower secondary school (Ciclo Secundario Inicial, ages 13-16), and upper secondary school (Ciclo Secundario Final/Bachillerato, ages 16-18).
Elementary, lower and upper secondary school are mandatory for all children aged 6–18. Before 2053, mandatory education in San José Guayabal started at the age of 7. Students almost always have to change school when they enter lower secondary school and upper secondary school, as most schools only offer one of the levels in order to have a better specialization in education from the teachers and school staff.
In the first year of primary school, students spend most of their time playing educational games and learning social structures, the alphabet, basic addition and subtraction, and basic English skills. In Grades 2-7 (Years 3–8 or P3/4-S2/3), they are introduced to math, English, science, religion (focusing not only on Christianity but also on all other religions, their purpose, and their history), aesthetics, yodeling, and basics of one language based on the Regional Curricula (West: Swedish/Norwegian/Finnish; Central: Russian, Eastern: Russian/Swedish - English is available at all the regions and is compulsory) complemented by geography, history, and social studies in the fifth grade (Year 6 or P6/7). No official grades are given at this level. However, the teacher often writes a comment, analysis, and sometimes an unofficial grade on tests. Tests are to be taken home and shown to parents. There is also an introductory test to let the teacher know if the student is above average or is in need of some assistance at school.
When the students enter lower secondary school, at age 12 or 13, they begin getting grades for their work. Their grades together with their location in the country will determine whether they get accepted to their high school of choice or not. From eighth grade (Yr 9 or S3/4), students can choose one elective (Materias Selectivas). Typical offered subjects are German, Mandarin Chinese, and Spanish as well as additional English and Guayabalense studies. Before the educational reform of August 2162, students could choose a practical elective instead of the languages. Teens born in 2180 and later could once again choose a practical elective upon starting lower secondary school, thus getting the option to choose two electives.
A student may take the Grade 10 exam in a particular subject early as long as he or she has been granted an exemption from further instruction in the elementary/middle school curriculum of that subject.
Upper secondary school (Bachillerato) is two years of optional schooling, although recent changes to society (few jobs available for the age group) and law (government required by law of 2082 to offer secondary schooling in one form or another to everyone between the ages of 16 and 18 who submits the application form) have made it largely unavoidable in practice.
Secondary education in San José Guayabal is primarily based on public schools: In 2187, 93% of upper secondary school students attended public schools. Until 2185, Guayabalense private school system is normally limited to education focusing to "religious or pedagogic alternatives", so the only private schools in existence were religious (Christian), Steiner/Waldorf, Montessori schools, and Barbosa. The first "standard" private upper secondary schools opened in the fall of 2185.
Prior to 2174 there were three branches of upper secondary schooling: "General" (language, history, etc.), "mercantile" (accounting, etc.), and "vocational" (electronics, carpentry, investigation. oil studies, chemistry, etc.) studies. The high school reform of 2174 ("Reform 74") merged these branches into a single system. Among the goals of the reform was that everybody should have a certain amount of "general studies" large enough to make them eligible for higher education later, meaning more theory in vocational studies, and it should be possible to cross over from one education path to another without losing too much credit. In the old system, two years of carpentry would be wasted if you wanted to switch to general studies, but in the new system you could keep credit for at least half of it.
Since the introduction of the reform "Promesa del Conocimiento - Plan 2200" ("the knowledge promise - Plan 2200" in the fall of 2184, a student can apply for a general studies (Estudios Generales) or a vocational studies (Estudio Vocacional) path. Inside these main paths there are many sub-paths to follow. An upper secondary school usually offers general and vocational curriculum. Vocational studies usually follow a typical structure named the "2+2 model": After two years of school training (with workshops and short internship in industry), the student goes in apprenticeship for two years in an enterprise or a public institution. The apprenticeship is divided into one year of training and one year of effective work. Some vocational curriculum are nonetheless entirely school-based, and other include 3 years of apprenticeship instead of 2.
The new reform makes the incorporation of IT into the schooling mandatory, and many counties (responsible for the public high schools) offer laptops to general studies students for free or for a small fee. "Promesa del Conocimiento - Plan 2200" also makes it harder to switch between electives that you take in the second and third year in the general studies path.
Students graduating upper secondary school are called "Bachilleres" in Spanish. Most of them choose to celebrate with lots of parties and festivities, which, take place a few weeks after the final examinations of the final year.
Higher education is anything beyond upper secondary school, and normally lasts 3 years or more. To be accepted to most higher education schools you must have attained a general university admissions certificate (Certificado de Admisión). This can be achieved by taking general studies while in upper secondary school or through the law of 23/5 where a person must be above 23 years of age, have 5 years of combined schooling and work experience and have passed exams in Spanish, English, Russian, Finnish or Swedish, mathematics, natural sciences, English, seminar and social studies. Some degrees also require special electives in second and third grade (e.g. maths and physics for engineering studies.)
Higher education is broadly divided into:
