The Peru-Bolivian Confederation is a country located in South America, that comprised the former Republics of Peru and Bolivia.


Post-3GW: Creation of the Confederation

The Third Global War resulted in the total collapse of the governments in Peru and Bolivia, with cities in both countries devastated, thousands of innocent people dead, and rogue soldiers attacking villages and stealing food. For to restore the order, the troops from the victorious nations of Brazil, Colombia and Chile occupied Peru and Bolivia completely, and established a only provisional government for both countries. The interim Junta, that was conformed by officers from Bolivia and Peru, was headed by the former peruvian General Manuel A. Odría, who act as "President-Chairman" during three years and later was succeeded by the former Bolivian colonel Enrique Peñaranda, who also serves three years.

Under Brazilian Sphere

With the new government formally establish, in 1954, assume as President-Chairman Zenón Noriega Agüero, who continue the process of reconstruction, meanwhile the foreign troops provide security in different regions of the country, specially the rural zones. However, the slow progress for raise the economy and the national infrastructure caused violent protest in many towns, which were crushed by the militaries with more violence. Finally in 1957, while he was inspecting the works in the northern city of Piura, Noriega was killed by local man.

Carlos Quintanilla Quiroga, Minister of Defense, was selected by the "Confederation High Council" rapidly for replace to Noruega. The new President had success to recover the economy of the country, which allowed to obtain earnings for the state that were dedicated to education and health. Quintanilla die at the age of 75, in 1964, and was succeded by Ricardo Pérez Godoy, who was killed by an sorelist guerrilla in 1969. Gualberto Villarroel, then, assume the Presidency, but die from a stroke only two years after.

The General René Barrientos replaced him, and rule the country until 1974, when resigned by health problems. In the early 1970, the government's Council decided to begin a new campaign against the sorelist insurgent movements, those who were hiding themselves across all mountainous territory of the country. The confederation army, trained ans supported by the brazilian services, between the years 1971 and 1975, dozens of attacks against the guerrillas were realized, killing thousands of revolutionaries, but with a high collateral cost in military and civilian lifes -and subsequently in government's popularity-. However, popular dissatisfaction against the military rule increasing even more when the economy suddenly collapse in 1977, due to the events in Brazil (Peru-Bolivia's principal commerce partner). This critical situation caused the death from a heart attack to the president Velasco Alvarado, the same year. Soon, the massive social riots forced to the new President-Chairman, Alfredo Ovando Candía, to decree state of emergency during the next three years.
