In 1973, the military under General UsefulNotes/AugustoPinochet (supported by the [[MoralMyopia United States]]) performed a coup d'etat against the Socialist government of Salvador Allende. Pinochet's [[BananaRepublic dictatorship]] lasted until 1989, when a national plebiscite was held to determine whether or not the military government should remain in power. If you happen to be among Chileans, [[BrokenBase it is usually not wise bring up the topic]]. '''Seriously'''. It may sound weird but Pinochet still has many [[BlackShirt supporters]], so be careful what you say.

Chile, like the rest of Latin America, is a multiethnic country, but unlike other countries, the government doesn't actually register race among its citizens. This is in part due to the ruling elite being composed by white people, who were focused on bringing european immigrants to replace or mix with the native population, in a process known as ''Blanqueamiento''. Other reason has to do with the loss of cultural identity among the native Picunches, who eventually embraced the new independentist movement and became today's Chileans. This created a culturally homogenous population that followed hispanic traditions regardless of race. The only exceptions were the reche tribes in the south of Bio Bio who became the Mapuche nation, a number of Atacameño people that rejected the new chilean state and kept practicing some of their traditions, and the Tehuelche tribes who were too far away to actually be incorporated to the new Chilean state.

The native language of Chile, Chilidugú, became extinct during the colonial era, so spanish is the current de facto language. It's spoken fast, eliminating the s' and d's from words. It mixes a lot of words from chilidugun and quechua, and it varies between upper and low classes. Other European languages like English, Portuguese, and French are spoken to some degree by people around the country, with fluency varying from person to person. Surviving chilean languages are the Mapudungun languages and Southern Aymara, while many other native tongues were lost thanks to cultural assimilation and the extermination of local tribes.

Currently the country is being led by Michelle Bachelet from the Socialist Party. Her government is known for being very divisive among Chileans, some considering it only populist rhethoric, the best government Chile ever had, or in the case of the right-wing parties, [[DirtyCommunists another Soviet-communist government that puts the country at danger.]] Ironically, most of the neoliberal policies were actually reinforced during her coalition's government.

Among the many presidents the country had, Sebastian Piñera is perhaps the most (in)famous. Known for his frequent malapropism, an unbreakable record of faceplants, and [[TheJinx the seemingly justified belief that he causes bad luck to people around him,]] he is considered among chileans as some kind of buffoon, even by his own supporters. He also descends from [[FamousAncestor Huayna Capac]], making him a member of the Royal Incaic House. [[TheKlutz Beware.]]

Before the Spanish arrival, Chile was part of the Qullasuyu, the southern part of the Inca Empire. The central part corresponds to Chili and Atakama, native states allied with the Incaic administration, while the southern parts was controlled by the Mapuche tribes, who are known for successfully repelling both Inca and Spanish invaders. The southernmost area, namely the Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego, were populated by the Patagones or Tehuelches, a group of different tribes that were mistaken for giants by the Europeans.

With the victory of the Social Democrats in 1989, Chile entered a new era of economic growth and social changes, with many hoping for a better future. But with many of the human rights violators being pardoned, the neglectfulness of the new democratic state towards the poorer classes, and an increase of corruption among government officials, many chileans see today a bleak future for their country.

Statistically, it has one of the best life qualities and economic developments in Latin America[[note]]While It's not very well known, Chile was in fact the most affected country during the Great Depression, in the WHOLE world.[[/note]], but also has a big problem with economic inequality and poverty. Chile stretches from the Atacama desert to the Patagonia stopping just before Antarctica (although they do have a claim over a portion of the Antarctica, to the point they have one of the few Civilian settlements there, Villa las Estrellas), and also has two islands in the Pacific, the Juan Fernandez Island and [[LandmarkOfLore Easter Island]] or Rapa Nui, which is well known for the [[EenieMeenieMinyMoai big rock heads called Moai that surround the island]]. Ironically not too many people outside of Chile know is part of the country.

When the Spaniards came to America in the 15th century, Chile was the last place they visited, because to reach it, they needed to cross the Atacama Desert, [[DeaderThanDead which is fifty times drier than the Death Valley]], and for a long time Chile was known as a [[CrapsackWorld Spaniard´s grave]]. When they arrived, a war lasting over 300 years began between the Spaniards and the natives, particularly the Mapuche tribes. During this period, Chile became a Spanish colony, obtaining independence in 1818 after a war of independence against the royalists led by people like [[RedHeadedHero Bernardo]] [[HeroicBastard O' Higgins]], [[MasterOfDisguise Manuel]] [[GuileHero Rodriguez]] and [[ColonelBadass Jose Miguel]] Carrera. [[InternetBackdraft Do NOT ask who was the best of them]].
