Peru

Jump to: navigation, search

Peru is a mountainous South American nation, notable for being the home of several ancient cultures, the most recent and famous among them being the Incas (that is, before they were curb-stomped by the conquistadors). Lake Titicaca can be found in the country, as can the Nazca lines and several other ancient sites, including Machu Picchu and Cusco. It's also known for exporting vast quantities of drugs, a recent civil war with a drug cartel cum cultish revolutionary Marxist terrorist organization called Shining Path, and a succession of highly corrupt and generally violent leaders, including several alumni of the School of the Americas.
