Nicaragua is a republic and the largest nation in Central America. Called "the land of lakes and volcanoes," Nicaragua contains regions of thick rain forests, rugged highlands, and fertile farming areas. The largest lakes in Central America and a chain of volcanic peaks dominate its western heartland, the centre of its population and economy. Severe earthquakes have destroyed Managua, its capital and largest city, twice in the 20th century.
