Country Information

IG Factbook: "Ancient Peru was the seat of several prominent Andean civilizations, most notably that of the Incas whose empire was captured by Spanish conquistadors in 1533. Peruvian independence was declared in 1821, and remaining Spanish forces were defeated in 1824. After a dozen years of military rule, Peru returned to democratic leadership in 1980, but experienced economic problems and the growth of a violent insurgency. President Alberto Fujimori's election in 1990 ushered in a decade that saw a dramatic turnaround in the economy and significant progress in curtailing guerrilla activity. However, the president's increasing reliance on brutal and authoritarian measures and an economic slump in the late 1990s generated mounting dissatisfaction with his regime, which led to his ousting in 2000."


  • In a news headline, it mentions about "First public chicken crossing declared in Peru". This news headline possibly refers to the jokes and memes about birds from Peru made by Internet users from Latin American countries. In the official translation of Plague Inc. into Spanish, the word "Chickens" (Pollos) was replaced by "Pigeons" (Palomas).
  • It is also the only poor cold country, as all the others are middle-class or rich.
