Puer·to Ri·co

 (pwĕr′tə rē′kō, pôrt′ə, pwĕr′tō)
Abbr. PR or P.R.
A self-governing island commonwealth of the United States in the Caribbean Sea east of Hispaniola. Inhabited by the Taíno when it was visited by Columbus in 1493, it was colonized by the Spanish in the 1500s and ceded to the United States in 1898 after the Spanish-American War. Puerto Ricans were granted US citizenship in 1917, although residents of the island do not vote in US presidential elections. Commonwealth status was proclaimed in 1952 and has been upheld by various plebiscites since the 1960s. San Juan is the capital and the largest city.
