Nicaragua, country in Central America, is the largest of the Central American republics. Nicaragua can be characterised by its agricultural economy, its history of autocratic government, and its imbalance of regional development—almost all settlement and economic activities are concentrated in the western half of the country.


The country’s name is derived from Nicarao, Chief of the indigenous tribe that lived around present-day Lake Nicaragua during the late 15th and early 16th centuries.


Nicaragua has a unique history in that it was the only country in Latin America to be colonised by both the Spanish and the British. Nicaragua’s population is made up mostly of mestizos (people of mixed European and Indian ancestry). The national capital is Managua, which also is the country’s largest city and home to about one-sixth of the population.
