Kuskalla Suyu is located on the west coast of Pacha. Its climate is mostly tropical, but ranges from warm and wet in the lowlands to cold and dry in the Andes (Antis) Mountains. Inhabited by various Aboriginal groups for thousands of years, and part of the Wari and Inca Empires, its most numerous ethnic group is the Quechuan people.

History

In the 1500s, the Incas came into contact with Europeans for the first time. Trade began and soon Lima became a major city for foreign trade, situated as it was on the Pacific coast and with a mild climate. Lima became a "limited-access city", with strict laws pertaining to how and when people could enter or exit the city. In this way, in addition to Lima's role as a major port, but also acted as an isolation ward and quarantine area for life-threatening diseases, often but not always sparing the surrounding country (and the capital, Cusco) of major outbreaks. Tawantin Suyu (the Inca Empire) also became known over the years for innovations concerning the treatment of diseases. However, all was not calm in the empire, as various resistance movements wanted more autonomy or outright independence. A crisis was averted when in 1725, various regions got more autonomy and the four provinces were split into ten. The name then became Chunkantin Suyu, which means literally, "ten lands/provinces together". This stability would last until 1823, when most of the ethnic Aymara "Qulla Suyu" province erupted in rebellion. This rebellion spread to Quechua areas and on September 13th, 1827, the emperor was forced to step down. Much of Qulla Suyu broke away to become the independent republic of Aymara Suyu, and a republican constitution was approved on the second anniversary of the emperor's abdication, and the name of the new republic became Kuskalla Suyu. Since then, it has survived intact with few rebellions or modifications to the constitution.

Kuskalla Suyu was one of the first Pachan countries to take advantage of modern technologies, such as electric appliances and modern medicines. In fact, owing to its history, it is and has been a main center for medical research, especially concerning the use of rain forest plants in treatments of diseases. Many of the largest health-supplement and herbal medication companies in the world are based in Kuskalla Suyu. Kuskalla Suyu also has been recognized as a major force in the preservation of the Great Pachan Rain forest, with approximately 50% of its own territory recognized either as a strict nature preserve or as a tribal reserve with nature protection policies. In addition, it and its predecessor state Chunkantin Suyu were instrumental in establishing and overseeing the Great Pachan Rainforest Preserve, which is the world's second-largest protected area after Antarctica.
