Bolivia endured more than 200 coups or revolutions since it became independent from Spain in 1825, but democracy has resulted in political stability since 1985. Nevertheless, social problems such as poverty and gender inequality persist. The Catholic Church’s status as the State Church is being threatened by the rapid growth of other religious bodies. Still, Catholicism is the dominant religion in Bolivia. Catholic holidays such as Christmas, Easter, and the Feast of Corpus Christi are celebrated by Bolivians.
