BC: A Brief History of Spitily- Spitily was formed in 1953, by the Treaty of McLaughlin, to settle a dispute between Spain and Italy. The style of the fifties stuck around, and has now come back in style. Since the country is so new, it does not have a lot of its own culture. Its language is a mixture of pidgin Spanish and pidgin Italian, Spatalian. The Spatalians have had one civil war, in 1982. The war lasted a total of four days and two people were killed.

5: Music- Rap and pop are the two main types of music listened to in Spitily. Cultural globalization has resulted in the almost complete destruction of folk culture in this country, so folk music is extremely hard to come by.
6: Food- Due to their heritage, the Spitalians eat a fusion of Spanish and Italian foods. These fusion foods include spaghetti tacos, garlic bread dipped in salsa, and jalapeño pizza. Of course, more popular foods such as burgers and fries are also available.
7: Social Interaction- People in Spitily have a mixture of very hot blood, being descended from both Spanish and Italian. By way of greeting, they punch each other in the stomach, to show dominance. The Spitalian government is taking steps to dissolve this sometimes harmful greeting, but it is slow going.
8: Religion- The Spitalians don't follow a hard-set religion, instead, they choose to worship in a more open ended way, by worshiping the stars and planets. This worship is done twice a day, at dawn and dusk. At dawn, the worship is toward the east, the rising sun. The morning prayer is for well being during the day. At dusk, the worship is toward the west, the setting sun. This prayer is a thanks for all blessings received during the day.
9: Folklore- Spitily's folklore has been replaced slowly and completely by the stories of other countries. Their lack of folklore is folklore in itself.
